My research is about EU migrants’ experiences with the naturalisation process in the UK. I am conducting interviews (40 min to 1 hour) with migrants who are eligible to applying for British citizenship, whether they have applied already, are in the process of applying or are thinking of applying. I believe they can help us understand the process from the migrants’ perspective better.
