Six rounds of negotiations have now taken place in the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union, but the ‘sufficient progress’ required to move to the next phase of the talks for now remains elusive. The UK’s financial settlement continues to present difficulties for the negotiators. Meanwhile, the issue of the Ireland – Northern Ireland border has been the subject of renewed attention, following the publication of the European Commission’s Dialogue on Ireland/Northern Ireland on 8 November. Issue 30 of the IIEA Brexit Brief examines these issues, and highlights relevant developments in Ireland and the other Member States.
