Event description

Description

Environmental issues barely featured in the EU referendum campaign, yet over 40 years of membership of the European Union have profoundly shaped environmental, agri-food and energy systems both in Northern Ireland and in the Republic of Ireland.

Join us at Queen's University Belfast on the first anniversary of the UK referendum on exiting the EU for this public roundtable that brings together academics and practitioners to discuss what Brexit means for our environment North and South.

Issues for discussion include:

  • To what extent will Brexit impacts be felt beyond the UK?
  • How will Brexit, and the prospect of a harder border impact whole-island supply chains in energy and agri-food?
  • How should agricultural and environmental policies change after Brexit – and where should these decisions be made?

Organised by the Political Studies Association of Ireland (PSAI) Environmental Politics Specialist Group, confirmed speakers to date include Dr Viviane Gravey from Queen's University and Dr Charlotte Burns from University of York.
