Since the UK left the EU on 31 January 2020, media coverage of the UK-EU future relationship negotiations has focused on the vital area of trade and tariffs. But of equal importance is how the UK and the EU will collaborate post-Brexit to support policing and security on both sides of the border on the island of Ireland.
EU law enforcement and criminal justice mechanisms, such as the European Arrest Warrant, have played a key role in supporting the operations of the police forces in both Northern Ireland and the Republic. On 17 November, the Security and Justice Sub-Committee, chaired by Lord Ricketts, a former UK National Security Adviser, will examine with experts the value of those EU mechanisms, and what should replace them to ensure minimal impact on policing and security on the island of Ireland.
