Brexit and the Central Border Region of Ireland
2017 - Present
Although the UK has now left EU, the full impact of Brexit and the NI Protocol on the Irish border area remains undefined, with answers to many questions remaining outstanding. ICBAN developed a Policy Paper on Brexit in March 2017, noting and respecting the differing political positions of our Management Board. It was agreed that the organisation would work towards highlighting any opportunities or concerns and to withstand any negative consequences arising from the Brexit process.
Having identified an absence of community consultation on both sides of the border, ICBAN together with Queen’s University Belfast have published four survey initiatives to date.
