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.

While some gradual progress continues on the issues of citizens’ rights and Northern Ireland, but the issue of the UK’s financial settlement remains deadlocked. Issue 28 of the IIEA Brexit Brief examines these developments and draws together the developments in the UK, EU and Ireland.

The fourth round of negotiations in the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union took place between 25-28 September 2017. Both sides reported some progress in the talks, but it will require a significant breakthrough in the October negotiating round if ‘sufficient progress’ is to be made in time for the European Council meeting of 19-20 October. Issue 27 of the IIEA Brexit Brief examines the latest developments in the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union.

In spite of some positive progress on the Irish issues, however, there remains a significant distance between the EU and UK negotiating positions.
