BrexitLawNI policy report: Brexit and the peace process

This paper focuses on the implications of Brexit for the peace process in Northern Ireland (NI). In a similar vein to all of the major peace process related agreements between the two governments  from the Anglo-Irish Agreement (1985) onwards, the Good Friday Agreement (1998) was premised upon the continued membership of the European Union (EU) of both the UK and Ireland.

This report addresses the specific impact of Brexit on each. In the concluding section the report considers ways in which the considerable challenges posed by Brexit might be mitigated, and offer some suggestions for potential ways forward.
