The potential impact of Brexit on the peace process in Ireland is exceptionally important and is examined in this chapter. It starts by analysing the EU’s contribution to the peace process, noting how joint membership of the EU helped create a framework of cooperation between the UK and Ireland. It then looks at how Brexit has disrupted three delicate balances on which the peace agreement was built: those between the communities in Northern Ireland, those with the Republic of Ireland, and those with the UK.
