Tanja Bueltmann

Tanja Bueltmann is a¬†citizens’ rights campaigner and founder of EU Citizens’ Champion.

Born in Germany and an EU citizen herself, Tanja, like the 3.6 million EU citizens who made the UK their home, is immediately affected by Brexit and by the upheavals it has brought.

Tanja has written for The Guardian, HuffPost, Metro and the THE among others.

Campaigning is of only one part of Tanja’s story, of course. In ‘normal’ life she holds a Chair in International History, with a specific focus on diaspora and migration history, at the University of Strathclyde. So in professional terms too Tanja has an interest in Brexit and is currently working on a project examining EU citizens’ collective action and belonging post-Brexit.
