This study, commissioned by the European Parliament’s Policy Department for Citizens’ Rights and Constitutional Affairs at the request of the AFCO Committee, describes the legal, political and economic relations of the two parts of Ireland and the United Kingdom, and possible arrangements for dealing with ‘Brexit’. The paper discusses several specific issues, in particular the Common Travel Area between Ireland and the United Kingdom, the consequences of an ‘invisible’ border between the two parts of Ireland, and trade in agricultural products.
