Can the Northern Ireland Protocol be made to work?

14 October 2021, 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

The Northern Ireland Protocol, a key but highly contentious element of the UK-EU post-Brexit deal, has caused enormous friction between Brussels, Dublin, Belfast and London.

It threatens to undo the peace settlement on the island of Ireland. It jeopardises the entire nexus of UK-EU relations. Can it survive? Be torn up or revamped? What’s the best solution?

Join us for our webinar as we discuss these questions.

Speakers:

John Bruton, ex-Taoiseach (Fine Gael) and ex-EU Ambassador to Washington, who now writes extensively on this and other EU issues.Prof Katy Hayward, from Queens University Belfast, the acknowledged expert on this subject (and others) on either side of the Irish Sea/English Channel.

Chair: Dr Kirsty Hughes, Scotland’s top EU analyst and founder/director of the former Scottish Centre on European Relations.
