The formal side of British-Irish relations needed strengthening to face the challenges of Brexit. In this post, on the 20th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement and ahead of the UK’s impending exit from the EU, Etain Tannam (Trinity College Dublin) invoked John Hume’s peacebuilding legacy to better explain the current state of British-Irish relations. She argued that Hume’s concept of the totality of British-Irish relations had taken on new importance and was as significant as it had been thirty years ago.
