We invite you to complete this 10 minute survey on the impact of Brexit on the Central Border Region.
We welcome responses from anyone living or working in areas of Armagh City Banbridge and Craigavon; Cavan; Donegal; Fermanagh and Omagh; Leitrim; Mid Ulster; Monaghan; and Sligo.
The Irish Central Border Area Network (ICBAN) Ltd. – the cross-border group of local authorities for the Central Border Region – together with a small team from Queen’s University Belfast are conducting a second research project on the impacts of Brexit for people living and working in this Region. This initiative follows on from the ‘Bordering on Brexit’ report which was completed in late 2017 and can be found at https://go.qub.ac.uk/bordering
The Bordering on Brexit report revealed the views of local communities one year on from the referendum result. This follow-on study, ‘Brexit at the Border’, aims to take account of recent developments and discussions on the issue of the Irish border a year away from the date the UK is due to leave the EU.
Brexit at the Border is a non-political and non-partisan study. We are keen to gather responses from the widest possible group of people from the Central Border Region. The purpose of the study is to create an opportunity for the voices of local people on both sides of the border and of all political views to be heard.
All data from the survey and focus groups will be gathered in accordance with strict research ethics and will remain anonymous.
The results of this project will be compiled in a final project report and disseminated to the media and to the governments of both the UK and Ireland, the European Commission and Parliament and other key stakeholders involved in the process of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU.
This ICBAN initiative is part of the Border Compass Project, working with Queen’s University Belfast and enabled through funding from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s Reconciliation Fund.
The online survey is now live at https://tinyurl.com/ICBAN-Brexit and will close on Monday 16th April at 5pm. Your help and assistance in promoting this to your stakeholders and contacts would be much appreciated.
