Brexit and Public Services in Northern IrelandWorking through uncertainty.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


On 8 June 2017 the United Kingdom had general election called to bring a sense of clarity and authority over the Brexit negotiations. Of course it did no such thing. Brexit amounts to a new order of uncertainty for public services. I want to examine Northern Ireland and in particular the NHS, police and local government. When do contingency plans need to be in place, when do actual resource committing decisions need to be made? Will budget allocations reflect needs? Is there going to be a Brexit window of opportunity to address long-term problems?
