Perspectives from Local Communities in the Central Border Region of Ireland/Northern Ireland - a new report by Dr Katy Hayward

The Border into Brexit

A new report presents the interim findings of The Border into Brexit project run by Queen’s University Belfast in conjunction with the Irish Central Border Area Network of 8 local authorities in the Central Border Region of Ireland/N. Ireland.

It offers preliminary analysis of a large online survey of residents across the region, from both sides of the border.

The survey asked people living and working in the region about their experiences of Brexit already, their anticipation of a hard border and their views on a No Deal Brexit, as well as the unique nature of the border region.
