‘There will be a return to violence in Northern Ireland in the event of the installation of infrastructure, custom checks and security on the Irish border as a result of a no deal Brexit’.
This is according to the February 2019 research (pdf) by Irish Senator Mark Daly in conjunction with two UNESCO chairmen. This paper explores the implications for youth including probabilities, as well possibilities, of a return to violent extremism among young people.
The research recommends:
- The government should launch a national-level task force or coordinating mechanism with national and local officials, law enforcement, civil society and other local leaders to examine potential threats
- This task force or coordinating mechanism should develop a national strategy for Countering Violent Extremism
- Identifying an individual or body to execute the strategy
