What does it mean to be a British citizen? For many years, British citizenship was synonymous with membership of a democratic, civilised society. Being subject to the rule of British law. Access to world-class healthcare and education. More recently, in light of the Windrush scandal and the Shamima Begum case, British citizenship for many has come to mean insecurity and conjures the spectre of statelessness.
Join Roger Robinson, Devyani Prabhat, Tasnime Akunjee and Aaqil Ahmed in conversation as they ask: in a ‘hostile environment’ and post-Brexit climate, how secure is anyone’s citizenship? And is the UK operating a prejudiced ‘two-tier’ system, in which some of us are considered ‘more British’ than others?
