These are the findings of a project on the impacts of Brexit and the possible implications of a ‘No Deal’ scenario on the Central Border Region of Ireland/Northern Ireland. This research has been conducted by a small team at Queen’s University Belfast (led by Dr. Katy Hayward & Dr. Milena Komarova), in conjunction with the Irish Central Border Area Network (ICBAN), the cross-border partnership of eight local authorities in the area known as the Central Border Region.
The report looks at:
- ‘The Border into Brexit’ project
- The impact of Brexit on those living in the Central Border Region
- A hard border
- Leave supporters in the region
- A No Deal Brexit
- The revised Protocol in the Withdrawal Agreement
