EU Exit Hub
Synopsis: This hub provides links to a range of information compiled by the Research and Information service (RaISe) relating to the UK exit from the European Union, with specific reference to Northern Ireland. Some of these sections are still under development. Information will be updated on a regular basis.
The Protocol on Ireland/Northern Ireland, commonly referred to as the Northern Ireland Protocol, is part of the Withdrawal Agreement, which set the terms of the UK’s exit from the EU. The protocol and its implementation have been subject to ongoing discussion and negotiation between the EU And the UK .
Information and updates relating to the development of common approaches across the UK in some policy areas that are currently governed by EU law.
As the UK left the EU, it converted – or “cut and pasted” - the body of existing EU law, as it applied to and in the UK prior to the end of the transition period, into domestic law. The UK government has now introduced a bill which will provide it with all the required provisions that allow for the amendment of retained EU law (REUL) and removal of the special features it has in the UK legal system.
RaISe produces numerous publications each year on a wide range of topics. This section provides access to publications relating specifically to the subject of Brexit / Brexit Transition and Northern Ireland.
Details of information resources which address the potential impacts of Brexit on Northern Ireland. This section now contains a new Reading List on Brexit Outcomes and Northern Ireland. This List will be updated as appropriate. (Last updated 29 July 2021)
