Professor David Phinnemore’s research interests are focused on European integration and cover in particular processes of EU treaty reform and their impact on the EU, the political dynamics underpinning EU enlargement and the EU’s relations with European non-member states. The prospect of the UK withdrawing from the EU has led to a recent focus on the negotiation of ‘Brexit’ and especially the implications for Northern Ireland and the island of Ireland.
