The future of EU citizens living in the UK was one of the big sticking points of the Brexit talks. In the 2019 Withdrawal Agreement, the UK agreed to establish an Independent Monitoring Authority to oversee the protections of the rights of EU citizens living in the UK before the end of the transition period.

What are the IMA’s priorities? What are its concerns? What progress has been made and what are the key challenges ahead?

Five months after the IMA’s launch, and with the 30 June deadline for EU citizens to register for settled, or pre-settled, status fast approaching, the IfG was pleased to welcome the new IMA chair and members of its senior team for a wide-ranging discussion on the IMA’s vital role.

We were joined by:

  • Sir Ashley Fox, Chair of the Independent Monitoring Authority
  • Kate Chamberlain, Chief Executive of the Independent Monitoring Authority
  • Pam Everett, Director of Operational Delivery at the Independent Monitoring Authority
  • Rhys Davies, General Counsel at the Independent Monitoring Authority  

The event was chaired by Jill Rutter, Senior Fellow at the Institute for Government
