Abstract only
Log-in for full text

This chapter looks at the impact of Brexit on British–Irish relations and particularly the border issue. It evaluates the Irish government’s dual strategy of building a domestic consensus and establishing support at the European level. It also assesses the implications for Ireland’s EU membership beyond Brexit, arguing that it represents a huge challenge for the country as it is losing a major trading partner and an ally on many issues in the EU, but also constitutes a decisive moment when Ireland committed itself to a European future.
