The repatriation of competences: implications for devolution

To study and support the role of parliaments in scrutinizing the Brexit negotiation processes and the outcomes. To meet with civil servants to help them understand the effects of different Brexit options on devolution in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.

The project will focus on three particular areas of devolved policy – agriculture, the environment and justice and home affairs – to investigate the particular consequences of bringing powers back from the EU to the UK after Brexit.
