Project Publications

During the project we will be publishing a range of short analysis pieces and lengthier explainers on different aspects of the Protocol on Ireland/Northern Ireland and the governance challenges arising from it. We will also be making available the results of the regular opinion poll surveys we have commissioned on attitudes in Northern Ireland to the Protocol and its implications. For news on the analysis pieces, explainers and opinion poll findings, follow the project on Twitter (@Post-BrexitGovernanceNI).

Public Opinion on the Protocol
What do voters in Northern Ireland think about the Protocol?

As part of the project we are interested in gauging public opinion on the Protocol and have commissioned LucidTalk to conduct regular surveys to determine attitudes on a range of issues relating to the Protocol and its implications for Northern Ireland. The surveys are being conducted every four months during 2021-2023 using LucidTalk’s online NI Opinion Panel. 

For each survey we are publishing a report.
