Northern Ireland:  Forgotten Nation?


Northern Ireland has come to dominate UK politics, with the Irish Backstop the critical issue in current Brexit negotiations.  Yet, despite Northern Ireland's prominence in public discourse, Northern Irish voices have remained largely marginalised as Westminster and Brussels decide its fate.  Meanwhile, with nationalists and unionists unable to reach an accord in Stormont, the nation has gone without a government for over 2 years, leaving citizens without representatives, and services without funding


These problems threaten to re-open old divides, and have cast doubt over the sustainability of the Good Friday Agreement, 20 years on from its implementation.  Where is Northern Ireland to go from here?
