Abstract

Brexit created specific uncertainties in Northern Ireland, a post-conflict region where 55.7% of voters (and 85% of Catholics) voted to remain in the EU and where a land border is shared with Ireland. There are fears that Brexit will undermine the 1998 Good Friday Agreement (GFA) and jeopardise the peace process in Northern Ireland. In this post, Etain Tannam, argues that some of the most commonly proposed fears are based on false assumptions, but that Brexit’s implications for Northern Ireland are clearly destabilising, requiring continued prioritisation from the UK and Irish governments and the EU to limit damage
