This special edition of the Brexit Brief examines the aftermath of the agreement on the draft text of the Withdrawal Agreement in Brussels. The text includes agreement on the Protocol on Ireland and Northern Ireland and the option of an extended transition period. In the UK, the Withdrawal Agreement has engendered controversy, with Prime Minister Theresa May forced to defend the deal from critics inside her own party and across the political spectrum.
Brexit Brief, published by the IIEA’s UK Project Group, covers developments in the on-going debate over the UK’s vote to Leave the European Union. It is part of a wider communications programme, which will be highlighted on the Institute’s website. This brief can be accessed here.
