Constitutionally Sound episode 11: Northern Ireland after the election
In this episode of Constitutionally Sound, our host Nicola McEwen is joined by Katy Hayward, Professor of Political Sociology at Queen’s University Belfast and a Senior Fellow of the UK in a Changing Europe, and David McCann, Deputy Editor of Slugger O’Toole and lecturer in Politics and Government at Ulster University for a fascinating discussion on Northern Ireland and the 2022 Assembly elections.
They reflect on the results; the Alliance ‘surge’ and where those votes have come from; what the results might mean for the Protocol and how that might play out next; and what might be next for Northern Ireland itself.
Tune in for this and more from our guests.
