Mini-article on Brexit & Covid-19

Publication alert! Our new mini-article is now out in Discover Society, an online platform publishing academically informed short pieces for a general audience. In the article, we explore how the combined (institutional, political, social) hostilities of Brexit and the pandemic have impacted Polish essential workers in the UK. We argue that Covid-19 has reinforced pre-existing challenges that Brexit had created for Polish migrants. The article is part of an excellent special issue on anti-immigration policies and discourses guest edited by Prof. Louise Ryan. By linking the Windrush scandal, Brexit, asylum regulations, and recently proposed ‘off-shoring’, the issue offers a critique of how UK immigration policies are affecting migrant communities and wider UK society.
