This week, Craig talks to Ellen Joëlle Dalzell, activist and director of community design & campaign agency Artivism Scotland, about the Scottish Government’s Independence White Paper on citizenship. They discuss the positives around Scotland’s inclusive approach to migration and the fact that non-citizen residents enjoy many more of the same rights and responsibilities as citizens do compared to other countries but also the negatives such as the proposal to maintain the EU Settled Status scheme post-independence despite the Scottish Government objections to it at the time of launch.
For more on Ellen’s work on migrant and EU citizen rights, listen to her discussing the implications of Settled Status on the Policy Podcast here: https://commonweal.scot/podcast/the-common-weal-policy-podcast-episode-27/
