Ireland and the European Union: Economic, Political and Social Crises is an edited book by Dr Michael Holmes and Dr Kathryn Simpson which examines Ireland’s relationship with the EU from the 2008 financial crisis to the 2016 Brexit crisis and beyond.
This book examines how Ireland's relationship with the EU was affected by a succession of crises and comprehensively examines policy areas such as security, migration and taxation as well as protest politics, political parties and public opinion. It provides a summary of the main features of each of these main crises from both an EU and Irish perspective.
The book is also the first to provide a wide-ranging analysis on British-Irish relations in the context of Brexit assessing in particular the Withdrawal Agreement and Protocol on Ireland/Northern Ireland, the devolution settlement and the 1998 Agreement as well as the European dimension to Northern Ireland’s peace process.
In this non-traditional panel, leading academics who have contributed to the book will provide analysis and reflections on each of these crises in the context of key policy areas robustly examining Ireland's relationship with the EU.
