The COVID-19 crisis has shifted the debate on migration in the European Union. Previously labelled 'low skilled' workers, such as cleaners and delivery drivers, were the key workers assuring the functioning of essential services during this period. To unpack some of the European-level issues facing EU citizens living in another Member State, this paper focuses on case studies from EU citizens living in the United Kingdom. It is based on a series of testimonies on mainly two specific problems: access to social security and the impossibility of returning to one's country of residence.

"The impact of COVID-19 on EU citizens' rights in the United Kingdom" is the third paper in the series, Open Horizons.

Open Horizons is a series of papers which allows young European authors to express new ideas in support of European integration. They are personal, independent papers which are the sole responsibility of the authors. The series addresses a wealth of issues illustrating the concept of openness in terms of the economy, political science, sociology and history.

"The impact of COVID-19 on EU citizens' rights in the United Kingdom" is available in electronic format.
