Abstract

Following Brexit and the emphasis on the implementation of outstanding issues from the Good Friday/Belfast Agreement post the most recent Northern Ireland elections, this paper argues that this is a golden opportunity to explore alternatives to progress the implementation of a Northern Ireland Bill of Rights. This paper argues that at a time when there is so much uncertainty about the protection and safeguarding of rights with a real risk of lesser rights for fewer people in the UK, more than ever is the need to explore possible ways to ensure the implementation of a Northern Ireland Bill of Rights. This paper provides an alternative that reflects the current mood of implementation rather than re-negotiation.
