Abstract

Brexit is breaking peace in Northern Ireland and is the most significant event since the partition of Ireland in 1921. In 2021, Northern Ireland will commemorate its centenary, but Brexit, more than any other event in that hundred year history, has jeopardised its very existence. This book examines how Brexit has destabilised what is popularly known as the peace process in Northern Ireland. It assesses the impact of the Brexit referendum and subsequent negotiations between the UK government and the EU on the 1998 Good Friday Agreement and on political stability in Northern Ireland. And it explores the way in which Brexit brought contested political identities back into the foreground of political debate in Northern Ireland and how the future of the Irish border became an emblem for conflicting British and Irish visions of the future.
