Chapter 5: The long-term implications of Brexit for Northern Ireland

Brexit / BOOK
Przemysław Biskup

Date: 17/06/2020

Northern Ireland’s post-Brexit status may have been regulated by the Withdrawal Agreement, its Ireland/Northern Ireland Protocol and the Political Declaration. However, it remains to be seen how the politics of the isle of Ireland will play out in the long run. Simply put, Brexit jeopardises the Irish peace process directly. Przemysław Biskup presents and analyses Northern Ireland’s unique legal status under the Good Friday Agreement and Withdrawal Agreement, as well as the political, social and economic implications of the Brexit process for the province.

This chapter is part of the publication Towards an ambitious, broad, deep and flexible EU-UK partnership?, which examines the political, economic, social and institutional implications of the UK’s departure from the EU in different policy fields, as well as its impact on UK politics and EU integration. The contributions in this book, all by leading experts on Brexit, draw from discussions held in the Brexit Think Tank Group, which was set up by the EPC in the aftermath of the 2016 referendum. Through this format, the EPC facilitated a continuing exchange between the European Commission’s Task Force for Relations with the United Kingdom and the policy community.
