LCLC highlights the impact of Brexit on Lithuanians living in the UK
June 23, 2017
Panel discussion in Brussels
A year after the Brexit referendum, the Lithuanian City of London Club continues to highlight the impact of Brexit on Lithuanians living in the United Kingdom.

In preparation for a panel discussion about the impact of Brexit on Lithuanians in the UK, held in Brussels on 1 April 2017, LCLC conducted an online survey of over 1,000 Lithuanians in the UK. The club's president Marius Raugalas also presented the survey findings at the Parliament of Lithuania during a discussion on Brexit and the interests of Lithuanian citizens in the UK.

The key findings were as follows:

- Most respondents (77%) are worried about retaining their rights as EU citizens in the UK.

- More than half (55%) said it is likely or very likely that Brexit will force them to seek British citizenship, even if that would mean losing their Lithuanian citizenship (currently the Constitution of Lithuania does not allow Lithuanian citizens to have dual citizenship, with only a few exceptions).

- 7% think it is very likely that they will come back to Lithuania due to Brexit, and 21% and that it is very likely that as a result of Brexit they will move somewhere else (but not to Lithuania).

The survey results highlighted the importance of allowing dual citizenship for Lithuanians in the UK and other countries, and the risk of Lithuania losing thousands of its citizens due to Brexit.
