Professor Colin Harvey speaks at the ‘Ask the expert’ seminar on Brexit and Ireland

As part of the Social Market Foundation ‘Ask the Expert’ series, Colin Harvey, Brexit research leader at The UK in a Changing Europe and Professor of Human Rights Law, Queens University, Belfast will be speaking on Brexit and Ireland/ Northern Island, Brexit and the Constitutional Future of these Islands.

Professor Harvey will aim to examine the consequences of Brexit for Northern Ireland. It is widely accepted that Brexit will have serious implications for Northern Ireland. This includes the potential impact on the peace process, as well as the possibility of the re-emergence of a hard border on the island of Ireland. The objective is to clarify what the key issues are, how they have been handled in the negotiations thus far and to consider ways forward.

The Ask the Expert seminars are all broadcast live through the SMF’s Twitter account (@SMFthinktank),

A light lunch will be served from 12:00. If you have any access or dietary requirements, please contact Hannah Murphy via
