Briefing Paper 5: The Impact of Brexit on Devolution in Northern Ireland
Posted On: 14 Jan 2019
This is the fifth and final paper from our Briefing Paper Series on Brexit and the UK-Ireland Border. It considers the questions that the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union raises for devolution in Northern Ireland. Such questions are fundamental for the future of regional and UK governance as a whole. Moreover, devolution in Northern Ireland (in its relationship with the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement) also structures relations across the UK Ireland border and between the islands of Ireland and Great Britain. It is in this sense that CCBS addresses devolution as one of a number of ‘border regimes’ on the island of Ireland.
