Was The Eu Involved In The Good Friday Agreement
5 For all those who attempt to describe the Irish border as it is today, the exercise is very similar to the description of each European internal border. The Irish border sees and operates like any normal intra-European border through which goods, services, capital and population movements pass.2 Unlike other European borders, the current situation on the island of Ireland is not the only result of London and Dublin`s accession to the EEC/EU since 1973. It is first of all the result of a political compromise between the two Irish communities and between the two sovereign states anchored in the PMB. Until the 1998 peace settlement and even though the two sovereign states were members of the EEC/EU, the Irish border had remained very within other European borders. It became heavily policeted and militarized. The number of routes crossing the border was limited and hindered the international transport of people as well as cross-border trade in goods, services and capital3. For the first time, the Irish government agreed, in a binding international agreement, that Northern Ireland was part of the United Kingdom.  The Irish Constitution has also been amended to implicitly recognize Northern Ireland as part of the sovereign territory of the United Kingdom provided that the majority of the population of the island`s two jurisdictions has agreed to a unified Ireland. On the other hand, the language of the agreement reflects a change in the UK`s emphasis on the one-for-eu law to United Ireland.  The agreement therefore left open the question of future sovereignty over Northern Ireland.  The British government is virtually out of the game and neither Parliament nor the British people have the legal right, as part of this agreement, to obstruct the achievement of Irish unity if it had the approval of the north and south people… Our nation is and will remain a nation of 32 circles. Antrim and Down are and will remain a part of Ireland, just like any southern county.
 Although William Orpen`s painting, The Signing, was a historic moment of dissolution, the historical consequences of the event would destroy the peace it was to attain. The treaty proved to be penalizing, distributed recriminations and reparations on a defeated Germany. In twenty years, its provisions have been partly responsible for a new European cataclysm. On the other hand, the GFA did not concede a victory for both parties. While there have been many regrets about the Brexit process, the almost uninterrupted respect that all parties have for the risks of tearing up this agreement has been positive. Europe will demand the abolition of the DUP veto and just about the backstop station of the customs union. But even if the Johnson government finally admits everything, the result would be a terrible deal for the UK.
