The Law & Politics of Brexit Volume 4: The Protocol on Ireland / Northern Ireland (foreword by Simon Coveney)

Professor Federico Fabbrini, Founding Director of the Brexit Institute and Full Professor of EU law at the School of Law and Government, Dublin City University, is the editor of the new book “The Law & Politics of Brexit Volume 4: The Protocol on Ireland/Northern Ireland“. The book, which features a preface by Simon Coveney (Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ireland) and is published by Oxford University Press, provides the first comprehensive academic analysis on Protocol on Ireland/Northern Ireland, from the perspective of law, politics, sociology, and trade.

The book – which builds on the prior volumes in the series: “The Law & Politics of Brexit” (OUP 2017), “The Law & Politics of Brexit Volume 2: The Withdrawal Agreement” (OUP 2020) and “The Law & Politics of Brexit Volume 3: The Framework of New EU-UK Relations” (OUP 2021) – is a timely and detailed analysis of all the provisions of the Protocol and of the broader setting in which they must be contextualized. It provides an examination of the challenges posed by the implementation of the Protocol and the confrontation it created between the EU and the UK, which is continuing today and will likely be a major factor in their relations going forward.
