Constitutions and these islands: beyond Brexit (Part two)
This is the second part of the third Constitutional Conversation 'Constitutions and these Islands: Beyond Brexit', in a series of six conversations.
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.
Part one of this conversation took place on 6 May 2016 and was entitled ‘A New Relationship? Brexit, Ireland and Northern Ireland’. The report of that conversation can be found here
The Chatham House Rule applies to all the conversations in this series.
