Northern Ireland at the Edge: What's next after Brexit? focuses on the consequences of the UK’s future relationship with Ireland, north and south. Should the UK withdraw from the EU (as announced by its government), the EU’s external border might be located in Ireland. Our first panel offers suggestions on a special status for Northern Ireland maintaining its membership in the EU or a Common Travel Area in Ireland. The second panel analyses existing relations between the EU and European States not in the EU which, among others, also avoid extensive border controls between those states (Norway, Switzerland and Liechtenstein) and the EU.
This Brexit conversation has been co-organised and co-sponsored by JMCE Tensions at the EU Fringes (TREUP) and by The UK in a Changing Europe.
