Constitutions and these islands: beyond Brexit Part One10 June 2016
Report published following Constitutional Conversations, no. 3 of 6.
This event, which was held on 6 May 2016 in the RIA, was the third in a series of six conversations on constitutional developments across the island of Ireland.More specifically, it was the first of a two-part dialogue on the implications of ‘Brexit’ for relations between the various jurisdictions of these islands. From the outset, participants were made aware of the importance of this particular entry to the conversational series,due to the seriousness of the subject matter and the dangers for British-Irish relations and North–South cooperation of the UK’s exit from the EU. It was therefore felt appropriate that a discussion of such salience be undertaken by leading scholars, policymakers and governmental representatives from the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.In addition,it was agreed that the discussion would best be facilitated by a conversational format,where all participants were free to contribute, as opposed to the more restrictive milieus of lectures and presentations.
