What next for Northern Ireland?


The recent imbroglio in which the EU invoked Article 16 of the Protocol16 in its dispute with Astra-Zeneca over the export Covid-19 vaccines display the fragility of the post-Brexit arrangements that will be reviewed in 2024.

In this environment, the asymmetrical nature of NI-GB and NI-EU transactions creates perverse outcomes and unintended consequences for the different sectors of the Northern Irish economy.

At the next Centre for Brexit Studies online event, a panel of experts will discuss the future of Northern Ireland in the new post-Brexit landscape.

The event will analyse the economic implications for Northern Ireland arising out of the UK-EU withdrawal agreement Protocol, as well as the potential in its strategic positioning in regard to Great Britain, the Republic of Ireland and the rest of the European Union.

The event, taking place on Thursday 25 February from 9.00am-10.30am, will be hosted by Professor Alex de Ruyter, Director at the Centre for Brexit Studies, followed by Q&A from the audience.

Panel Members:

Hosted by Professor Alex de Ruyter - Director at the Centre for Brexit Studies.

Professor Leslie Budd - Professor of Regional Economy at The Open University and Visiting Professor at the Centre for Brexit Studies.

Dr Graham Brownlow – Economist and Senior Lecturer at Queen’s University Belfast.

Aodhán Michael Connolly - Director at Northern Ireland Retail Consortium.

Vicky Pryce - Economist and Business Consultant, Visiting Professor at Birmingham City University and Board Member of the Centre for Economics and Business Research.
