Constitutionally questioned : UK debates, international law, and Northern Ireland.

O'Donoghue, Aoife and Warwick, Ben T.C. (2015) 'Constitutionally questioned : UK debates, international law, and Northern Ireland.', Northern Ireland legal quarterly., 66 (1). pp. 93-104.

Abstract

This comment examines the proposed UK constitutional changes proffered following the no-vote in the Scottish Independence Referendum from an international legal perspective. With a particular focus on the implications for Northern Ireland, this piece considers the implications of further devolution, proposed federalism, changes to the UK's relationship with the European Convention on Human Rights, modifications of relations with the EU and the implications of change to the relationship with the Republic of Ireland. In looking at these issues through the lens of international law this comment brings a fresh perspective to questions of constitutional change for Northern Ireland.
