.@InLimboBrexit (Thread) I arrived in the UK in 1984 as a guinea pig of the wonderful #Erasmus exchange. I fell instantly in love with the UK, its atmosphere, landscapes, tolerance, creativity and sense of humour. #WeCameHere4Love #WeLoveUK #Dundee
I was already in love with British literature & culture as a student. The music scene in late 1970s/early 1980s was particularly amazing. I adored Joy Division, Chameleons, Jesus &Mary Chain, DCD, Bauhaus etc. They fed my soul. #WeCameHere4Love #WeLoveUK tinyurl.com/lh4muy9
I met a beautiful English boy who soon became my best friend, later on my boyfriend, then my fiancé & has now been my husband for 29 yrs. He's my soulmate. Our different nationalities have never been a problem, and we're both passionate Europeans. #WeCameHere4Love #WeLoveUK

Three important, personal and academic milestones for me today. It is 2 years today since I joined @lawstrath as a Professor of Law. Fantastic colleagues and students. A pleasure to be in #Glasgow and #Scotland: a vibrant, welcoming and European place.
The EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement comes into force today. My first conference presentation (also in Glasgow) and publications was on this. Contemporary relevance? This deal has been 20 years in the making (take note, Brexit Britain). japanesestudies.org.uk/articles/2005/…
Two years exactly since I left @lawsheffield, my research on the academic impact of #Erasmus and study abroad based on 1300+ graduating students from Sheffield over 5 years is out. Clear evidence that students who go abroad achieve better degree results. tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.10…

What does #NoDealBrexit mean for #Erasmus? We already knew that the UK govt was going to fund successful bids before 2020 and has encouraged UK institutions to apply. But there are still things to note in the technical notice on Erasmus /1 gov.uk/government/pub…
Erasmus is fundamentally about mobility, there is a big question mark over the conditions of how people move UK-EU and EU-UK. The notice says: "The govt will need to reach agreement with the EU for UK organisations to continue participating in Erasmus+" /2
Which does not make sense: if there is no deal, then how can there be discussions about an "agreement"? It continues with "the government will engage with member states and key institutions to seek to ensure UK participants can continue" - but how? Bilateral agreements? /3

“All the reasons I am now getting involved in campaigning for a vote on the #Brexit deal with the hope to stop Brexit.” @fiocca1983 in @PMPmagToday. @RemainerNow #PeoplesVote @PeoplesVote_UK vip.politicsmeanspolitics.com/2018/08/21/i-v…
“Growing up, my family were always going on about how #immigrants are to blame for many things wrong in this country. I took on those views, I was conditioned to think them” @fiocca1983 says in @PMPmagToday @RemainerNow #Brexit #PeoplesVote @PeoplesVote_UK vip.politicsmeanspolitics.com/2018/08/21/i-v…
In 2016 @fiocca1983 thought “We don’t need #EU to trade, we can do deals with the rest of the world instead. 2 weeks to get #Doctor’s appointment! Less #immigrants would make that faster for sure!” He tells @PMPmagToday @RemainerNow #Brexit @PeoplesVote_UK vip.politicsmeanspolitics.com/2018/08/21/i-v…

Today is #EuropeDay!
It marks the anniversary of the 1950 Schuman Declaration, paving the way for even greater achievements in the decades that followed. Check out how we communicated about EU milestones through the years…
50 years ago, in 1968, we announced the creation of the #CustomsUnion with the aid of a well sharpened pencil and state-of-the-art technology. #EuropeDay
31 years ago, in 1987, we launched a student exchange programme: #Erasmus
All those years of mobility and cooperation have given Europe an open-minded and entrepreneurial generation of 9 million people. #EuropeDay
