Brexit: Potential Transitional Arrangements

In this IIEA Policy Brief, Con Lucey writes that a transitional arrangement in the context of the UK leaving the EU offers a number of potential advantages. Such a deal would provide stability during the likely gap between the UK’s withdrawal from the EU in late March 2019 and the completion of negotiations on new arrangements between the UK and the EU; help to mitigate the effects of the sudden imposition of tariffs on trade between the UK and the EU; and provide Irish business with time to adjust to new markets, and to find new supply sources.

Con Lucey was Chief Economist of the Irish Farmers Association from 1979 to 2008, where he was involved in providing information and analysis on farm production economics, national economic policy and EU policy. He represented the IFA on the National Economic and Social Council and served as the organisation’s liaison officer with Government on Social Partnership. He is a former Council member of the IIEA, and is a member of the IIEA’s UK Project Group, which examines the relationship between the UK and EU, and its implications for Ireland.

Europe’s Problem with England

This paper by guest contributor Edmond Grace SJ contends that Britain was constitutionally incapable of fulfilling the commitment entailed by its membership of the European Union and that Brexit is the inevitable outcome of this situation. The paper makes the case that Britain is a “vehicle for the pre-eminence of England” – and that this English pre-eminence is inimical to the sharing of sovereignty on which the European project depends.

Edmond Grace SJ is a Catholic priest and Director of PeopleTalk: Citizen Juries Shaping Government, an initiative of the Jesuits in Ireland. He studied law at Trinity College Dublin and Columbia University New York and is author of ‘Democracy and Public Happiness’ (I.P.A., 2007). He lectured on law and social ethics in the National College of Ireland and, while working in Gardiner St. parish in Dublin’s north inner city, was involved in building relations between local communities and an Garda Síochána as part of the struggle against drugs and organised crime. He has also written in various journals on jurisprudential and political matters, as well as playing a prominent role in the second Lisbon Referendum campaign in 2008. He is Coordinator of the Venice Workshop on Faith and Politics which is organised by every two years for young adults from around Europe.
