Northern Ireland and Brexit
A unique challenge in unique circumstances
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

This chapter argues that “Brexit has unsettled Northern Ireland”, both in economic terms and in terms of its delicate political/constitutional balance. It looks at the stances of the different parties on the EU and on Brexit and analyses in particular the border issue in the light of Brexit. The chapter also goes into depth on the Protocol on Ireland and Northern Ireland, a key agreement between the EU and the UK intended to avoid a hard border, preserve the integrity of the EU single market and maintain Northern Ireland’s place as a UK customs territory.
