Brexit, Devolution and Civil Society – conference films
On 2nd and 3rd May, an important conference was held in Belfast that brought together civil society representatives from across the devolved nations.
The conference was organised by the Civil Society Brexit Project – a partnership between the Human Rights Consortium Scotland and SULNE, funded by LEF – together with partner projects in Wales and Northern Ireland.
The conference looked at key issues such as the human rights framework after Brexit with key issues of the Good Friday Agreement, loss of the EU Charter on Fundamental Rights and the need to progress human rights further top of the agenda. The conference heard about key constitutional issues arising from Brexit as well as issues with social cohesion, rising racism, border tensions and uncertainty.
A conference report will be forthcoming. In the meantime, watch these short videos from:
