Addressing the implications for Northern Ireland (NI) and Ireland of the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the European Union (EU) is seen as the most fraught, technically complex and politically divisive element of the Brexit process. TheĀ Protocol on Ireland and Northern Ireland that emerged from the negotiations was subject to contention from the start, and even more so since it came into force on 1 January 2021. In recognition of this, the House of Lords established a dedicated Committee on the Protocol, as a Sub-Committee of the European Affairs Committee.

This report sets out the economic impact of theĀ Protocol on Ireland and Northern Ireland. It also assesses its political and social impact against the backdrop of continued political instability and community unrest.
