As we approach the scheduled date of the UK’s departure from the EU on 31 October 2019, there remains a significant level of uncertainty around the UK’s exit and the future shape of UK-EU relations. A dedicated website has been established to provide information and support to both staff and students and to help keep you up to date with the latest developments in the Brexit negotiations.
Informed by years of internationally-recognised research excellence, Queen’s on Brexit brings together leading academics from Queen’s University who can provide an authoritative voice on the Brexit process, the many policy areas affected by Brexit, and the subsequent impact on Northern Ireland, the island of Ireland, the UK and the EU-27.
January 2020 - The New Decade, New Approach (NDNA) agreement was announced by the Irish and British governments on 9 January 2020 and endorsed by all the main political parties in Northern Ireland (NI) on 10 January. It is significant not only because it paved the way for the restoration of the Northern Ireland devolved institutions (beginning with the Assembly and Executive on 11 January), but also because it comes at a momentous time for the future of the region.
