After Brexit: The Future of Ireland’s Relationship with the US and UK

Zoom Webinar
11:00 a.m.–12:15 p.m., December 8, 2020

This event has now concluded. A full-length recording is available below.

On January 31, the United Kingdom left the European Union and entered into a transition period, during which the UK remains in the EU customs union and single market. This implementation phase, which has allowed for crucial negotiations on the future of the UK-EU relationship, is due to end December 31, and divergence on key issues continues to stall progress.

Given these uncertainties, what does the future hold for the UK and the EU? What dangers might Brexit pose to the Good Friday Agreement? And how will the new Biden administration navigate a post-Brexit reality?  

Join us for a timely conversation featuring insights from a panel of experts, who will explore these issues and unpack their implications for the future of these geopolitical relationships.

This event is presented by the Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies at Notre Dame’s Keough School of Global Affairs, and by UK in a Changing Europe.
