UK Withdrawal and the ‘Backstop’ for Northern Ireland – Key Slides
Dr Katy Hayward and Professor David Phinnemore look at Brexit and the Backstop option for Northern Ireland through the following series of slides.
In the following series of slides, Katy and David look at what’s actually involved in the EU’s Protocol and what has been agreed; what the UK Technical Note proposes to add to/change in the backstop; what this backstop could mean for trade and regulatory divergence between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK; and if the backstop becomes a reality, how ‘hard’ could the Irish sea border become?
