British-Irish Relations, Northern Ireland and Europe: An Historical Perspective on a Contemporary Political Problem

Research output: Contribution to journalSpecial issue

Abstract

2021 brings many anniversaries with significance to British‐Irish and cross‐
border relations. Most obviously, it is Northern Ireland’s centenary, and the
same for the Anglo‐Irish Treaty which gave birth to the Irish state. Thus, it is
100 years since the border between the two parts of Ireland was confirmed.
This article will reflect on the legacy of such events, and the broader historical
patterns of British‐Irish relations, including their wider European context, to
show how they continue to interact and to shape contemporary politics in
these islands.
