How has Brexit redrawn the boundaries of membership in the UK? IRiS director Nando Sigona talks to professor Adrian Favell (University of Leeds) about the ESRC-funded Northern Exposure project on the impact of Brexit on northern towns and small cities, and how the end of freedom of movement doesn’t mean less immigration, but immigration with less rights and protections.
Adrian Favell is Professor of Sociology and Social Theory at the University of Leeds and chercheur associé of the Centre for European Studies at Sciences Po, Paris. He is also a Professorial Academic Associate of the Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Cultures and serves as an associate editor of Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies and on the editorial committee of Journal of Common Market Studies.
