The EU-UK negotiations in April have focused on the text of the Withdrawal Agreement and on the Ireland-Northern Ireland relationship. While both the UK and the EU have expressed their commitment to maintaining the free flow of people and goods over the Irish border, no solution has yet been found and agreement remains to be reached on the legal language for the proposed ‘backstop’ plan for Northern Ireland. Meanwhile, the domestic debate in the UK over its proposed departure from the EU Customs Union has intensified.

Brexit Brief, published by the IIEA’s UK Project Group, covers developments in the on-going debate over the UK’s vote to Leave the European Union. It is part of a wider communications programme, which will be highlighted on the Institute’s website.
