The project conducts two “deliberative democracy” exercises which allow Northern Ireland citizens the space and relevant information to consider the challenging issue of Brexit and the border. Once they have become informed about the issues and reflected upon them, the project asks citizens to put forward their own views.

How difficult would it be for Protestants/unionists to accept a policed East/West border and what level of protest would they condone?
