Event description


This webinar marks the release of the results of the 2019 Northern Ireland Life & Times survey.

There has been a lot of speculation about what Brexit means for the prospects of Irish unification. Although the future looks more uncertain than ever, one thing we can be sure of is that Irish unity will not happen without a referendum in Northern Ireland in which a majority of people vote in favour of such a change. For this reason, public attitudes here are important.The NI Life & Times (NILT) Survey has proven a useful tool for tracking changes (and continuities) over time in the political attitudes and identities of people in Northern Ireland.

In this webinar, Dr Katy Hayward, Dr Milena Komarova and Ben Rosher (Queen’s University Belfast) will discuss the results of new questions on the topic of Irish unification, in part to see what could potentially make a difference in changing those attitudes either for or against. These results will be considered in light of previous NILT results and the changing context for Northern Ireland’s post-Brexit future.
