The UK, Ireland & the European Union in a Time of Crisis: The Northern Ireland Protocol


UACES-IACES Joint Seminar Series

The arrival of a new British Prime Minister raises once again the question of whether a settlement over the Northern Ireland Protocol is possible.

Date and time

Wed, 19 October 2022, 17:30 – 19:30 CEST

As both the key to concluding the 2020 Withdrawal Agreement and the cause of much of the subsequent tension between the UK and the EU, the Protocol sits in an uneasy position, especially for the people of Northern Ireland itself. This event brings together insights from Ireland, the UK and the EU to consider whether the lived experience of the Protocol matches the rhetoric, the options open to the various parties involved and the question of whether the securing of a mutually-acceptable outcome might start to rebuild the UK’s relations with Ireland, the EU and beyond.


Chaired by Dr Giada Lagana (Cardiff University)
