  1. Ireland / United Kingdom: Donegal, a north-western fringe isolated by a border facing the uncertainties of Brexit

    Date de publication:

    26 Mai 2020

    Donegal is a large county located in the north-western fringe of the Isle of Ireland. It is isolated from the rest of the Republic of Ireland – to which it belongs – by a very long border with Northern Ireland, except for a very narrow strip of land in its southern part. However, the border has become invisible since the Good Friday agreements of 1998, which put an end to the Troubles in Northern Ireland. Donegal is a rural and sparsely populated county despite undeniable touristic assets whose economic vitality largely depends on trade with Northern Ireland. The prospect of the return of a hard border following Brexit has for the moment faded away with the displacement of the border in the Irish Sea. However, this is only a temporary provision which does not prevent its return in the long term. This would be a major obstacle to the economic development of the county and its inhabitants’ daily life, a sword of Damocles testifying to the geopolitical and geo-economic issues at stake in the British Isles because of Brexit and to the status of the borders between member states and external states.

  2. Ireland / Northern Ireland: Londonderry and its region, a debated border region in mutations

    Date de publication:

    11 Mai 2020

    Londonderry is located in the north-west of the Isle of Ireland, on the southern extremity of the vast Lough Foyle Bay. It is also very close to the border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Londonderry is situated in a very rural and isolated region. The city and its port play a central role in the economy of the region, as far as neighbouring County Donegal in the Republic of Ireland. More than twenty years after the beginning of the peace process in Northern Ireland, Northern Irish society is a post-conflict society that is still deeply marked by intercommunity tensions, which continue to take place in Londonderry, as everywhere else in Northern Ireland. The way Brexit is going to restructure the place and role of the border is bound to have major urban, social and (geo)political consequences in Londonderry.
