to the Commission
Rule 138

 Subject: Impact on the social and economic rights of Romanians and other Europeans of failure to reach an EU-UK Brexit agreement

On 31 January 2020, the United Kingdom left the European Union following the 2016 referendum. This marked the commencement of the post-Brexit transitional period, which is due to end on 31 December 2020. Negotiations by the European Union and United Kingdom are now entering a crucial phase in which speed is of the essence if a post-Brexit agreement is to be concluded in time for the Member States to ratify it by 2021, with the ever-present danger of failure by the two sides to reach an accord.

The fact is that 3-3.6 million European citizens, including around half a million Romanians, are currently resident the UK. In the event of no agreement, how will this affect the rights of those concerned, including students, researchers, skilled and unskilled workers and entrepreneurs with business activities in the UK?

What steps will the European Union take to protect its citizens?
