The HOUSE Magazine is the inhouse publication of the UK’s Houses of Parliament. This piece was commissioned to discuss what the British government should do in relation to EU residents post-Brexit.

How does the triggering of article 50 look from Europe? Op-ed, The Guardian

, 02/04/2017

How do I feel now that article 50 has been triggered?
