Three months after the UK’s EU referendum result, there is still little clarity on the future relationship between the UK and the EU, in particular the role the devolved administrations will play in the Brexit negotiations. Amongst this turmoil, what will Northern Ireland’s external affairs look like after Britain has left the EU?

Participants will discuss the main risks and opportunities involved in negotiating Brexit for Northern Ireland, including the implications for the peace process, trade relations between Northern Ireland and Ireland and the rest of the EU, and matters of security.

This workshop is part of a series on ‘the interrelationship of UK and EU foreign policy: costs and benefits’ led by Professor Richard Whitman and organized with the support of the European Social and Research Council (ESRC) under the auspices of its UK in a Changing Europe initiative.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
