These are the findings of a project on the impacts of Brexit and the possible implications of a ‘No Deal’ scenario on the Central Border Region of Ireland/Northern Ireland. This research has been conducted by a small team at Queen’s University Belfast (led by Dr. Katy Hayward & Dr. Milena Komarova), in conjunction with the Irish Central Border Area Network (ICBAN), the cross-border partnership of eight local authorities in the area known as the Central Border Region. The report looks at:
‘The Border into Brexit’ project;
The impact of Brexit on those living in the Central Border Region;
A hard border;
Leave supporters in the region;
A No Deal Brexit;
The revised Protocol in the Withdrawal Agreement.
