Brexit could spell the death of Northern Ireland

Politics reported on a claim by former British politicians that Brexit, the term for the U.K. leaving the European Union, threatens the Northern Ireland peace process.

Some believe that voting to leave the U.K. would result in stricter border controls between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Kurt Hübner, director of UBC’s Institute for European Studies, argued that Irish unity could be worth 36 billion euros for Ireland overall, with long-term gains in productivity and growth.
