Chatter Episode 18 – Dr Katy Hayward on Brexit and The Irish Border

Dr Katy Hayward, author at QPol (Queen’s University Belfast’s policy unit), was our guest on this show. She is a political sociologist with a PhD on the subject of the impact of European integration on cross-border relations on the island of Ireland and she has written extensively about the difficulties surrounding the Irish border issue in the Brexit negotiations. We were keen to get her on to discuss these difficulties, how the British and Irish governments have handled the issue, and the potential for technology to provide a form of solution.
