The LSE has found that a majority of young people in the UK want to keep the right to freedom of movement and maintain trade links with Europe after Brexit. Studying in Europe and taking advantage of European education programmes are also priorities. Many young people want the UK to remain an open and inclusive member of the global community of nations and have a strong relationship with the EU.

As the Brexit negotiations embark on their final phase, we would like to know what you think!

The EU should now be more engaged with British politics than ever, and proactively intervene to make a Labour-Tory bridge possible. This can then allow for the later relation between the EU and the UK to become very close and strong, whatever the final outcome. It would also provide for the EU to become a more formidable political 'actor'.

The Only reason why the Eu has granted an extension to the UK is because it still fears to be blamed for a tumultuous exit. This shows the EU’s willingness to continue with the UK on the best terms possible.

The Anglo-EU relationship is not one that has gone sour only now, but is the result of deep seated animosities and pragmatism. If this is the foundation now, the UK must engage more with its own and European history- notably through education- to ensure a better relationship can be guaranteed after Brexit.

Britain’s reasons for joining the EU were based on economic rationale.Since the very beginning, we have lacked an emotional, political attachment to the European project, without being able to build up a widespread pro-European movement based on more emotional arguments. I hope that Brexit has sparked the beginning of such a movement.

Today, we see major border commotion around for example Calais. However, could this not be the start of a new cooperation? As we know, in times of crises states tend to cooperate and here we can clearly see an opportunity to do so. I think that cooperation between the sea border states will become increasingly stronger over the years.

Leaving the EU must not mean the end of the close cooperation in higher education. Schemes like Erasmus are so important, both educationally and culturally, as well as academic cooperation and research across member states. Having lots of students finishing education with a global outlook and language skills can also be economically beneficial.

Freedom of movement has been a wonderful thing for this country, especially for youth, with the opportunity to study, travel and work in other member states so easily. With the government so determined that this will end, some kind of political agreement is needed that will allow us to continue to do this with as little bureaucracy as possible.

I believe free movement should still be kept between the United Kingdom and the European Union as it is beneficial to both the country and its citizens. They should also still fight to be on accord with protection of refugees and asylum seekers.

While it is clear that the EU member states and the UK have their differences, they also have major similarities and common interests. Furthermore, the UK's voting base was misinformed about the EU's benefits and actions and the UK's position in it. Would it not be beneficial for all if the UK and the EU intensify their cultural bonds after Brexit?

As a European that has lived in the United Kingdom for the last 7 years, I believe that Free movement between the European Union and the United Kingdom is essential. THere are many just like me that would be very poorly effected if there would be a hard border.
