UK: Government bars foreign academics from advising on Brexit - LSE informed that contributions from foreign experts on EU referendum matters will no longer be accepted


"Leading foreign academics acting as expert advisers to the UK government have been told they will not be asked to contribute to government work and analysis on Brexit because they are not British nationals.

The news was met with outrage by many academics, while legal experts questioned whether it could be legal under anti-discrimination laws and senior politicians criticised it as bewildering."
