25 people from a range of audiences attended this workshop, held as part of the ESRC's 'Festival of Social Science'. The event began with three short presentations reporting some headline findings from the research. The first presentation introduced the work package, its aims, methods, and contexts (both academic and broader). The second and third presentations presented empirical data in more detail: the second presentation explored variation in participation rates drawn from longitudinal studies, while the third gave an overview of the qualitative data examining EU citizens' participation in civil society in Wales, including their motivations, and the challenges they faced. Questions were then taken from the floor. Many members of the audience had been involved as participants in the study. The second part of the event involved a panel discussion from three practitioners working in different organisations and in different capacities, and looked at the broader challenges around participation in civil society and uncertainties and hostility around Brexit. The panel generated extensive discussions, and highlighted a number of avenues to follow-up, particularly around the EU settlement scheme and hate crimes, but also around the nature of funding community groups. A number of common experiences and ideas of best practice were discussed. Many attendees then networked with each other following the close of discussions.
