Transgressive Behavior of Black Nurses in The United Kingdom

This historical legal study is part of the Euromix Project that questions the regulation of ‘interracialized’ relationships Europe. The aim of this research is to contest the assumption that, in contrast to the United States, Europe has not regulated and segregated along racial lines. Specifically, this research concentrates on the  British national context during the  1949-1970, which during this particular time can arguably  be characterized by the crumbling of the old empire, the decolonization process in African, Middle East, Asia, and the large-scale migration from the previous colonies to the metropole. The creation of the National Health Service (NHS) in 1948 provided more work opportunity within the health care profession. This enabled overseas nurses to migrate to the Motherland to work for the NHS and contribute to its success story. These nurses arrived in large number, oftentimes traveling for the first time. In addition to a legal, policy and guideline analysis, this studies unique approach combines archival research with oral history in order to proof the existence of racial bias in the aforementioned documents and to show the societal impact on the everyday lives of people. Within the field of humanities, it is a common practice to use the ordinariness of the every life to demonstrate the existence of institutionalized racism. So far, the contribution made by legal scholarship in the production of racial hierarchies have not been studied extensively. It explicitly focuses on the role of law and incorporates different academic perspectives such as a Critical Race and Critical Legal perspective, Feminist standpoint, and theories dealing with Empire and Sex. The aim of the research is to understand and explore the concept of race, the role of law, and the particular experiences of couples in ‘Interracialized’ romantic relationship. By focusing on the role of law this research hopes to expose  how the concept of race is utilized to create hierarchies that not only  impact the social reality of couples in ‘Interracialized’ romantic relationship but also impact the lives of these couples on the institutional level.
