The Post-Brexit Future and Status of Northern Ireland
UK in a Changing Europe, ESRC, 2019-22
Northern Ireland has been pivotal to the process of the UK's withdrawal from the EU and will continue to be so in the negotiation of the future UK-EU relationship. A Fellowship on the UK in a Changing Europe on this subject in 2019-2022 will not only record and explain the impact of Brexit of Northern Ireland, but also the impact that Northern Ireland will inevitably have on post-Brexit landscape for the UK and EU itself.
Into a particularly febrile and dangerously uncertain environment, this Fellowship will allow us to reassert the invaluable role for non-partisan knowledge and rigorous evidence in political debate, providing a solid foundation for public understanding, policymaking and future planning.
