Much of the debate on the impact of Brexit on Ireland – North and South – has focused on economic issues, trade and agriculture. But civil society groups also believe that human rights and equality between men and women are under threat, says Farrell. Gormally stresses that the Human Rights Act and the European Court of Human Rights and state respect have nothing to do with EU membership. Direct domination of London ended in Northern Ireland when power was formally transferred to the new Northern Ireland Assembly, the North-South Council and the Anglo-Irish Council when the opening decisions of the Anglo-Irish Agreement came into force on 2 December 1999.    Article 4, paragraph 2 of the Anglo-Irish Agreement (the agreement between the British and Irish governments on the implementation of the Belfast Agreement) required both governments to inquire in writing about compliance with the terms of entry into force of the Anglo-Irish Agreement; The latter is expected to come into effect as soon as both notifications are received.  The British government has agreed to participate in a televised ceremony at Iveagh House in Dublin, the Irish Foreign Office. Peter Mandelson, Minister of Northern Ireland, participated in his participation in early December 2, 1999. He exchanged notifications with David Andrews, the Irish Foreign Secretary. Shortly after the ceremony, at 10:30 a.m., the Taoiseach, Bertie Ahern, signed the declaration of formal amendment of Articles 2 and 3 of the Irish Constitution.

B of the former groups of prisoners, which are essential to the peace process. Together, this economic pressure will pose a real threat to the social and economic rights of the most disadvantaged. The Conservative government`s plans to overthrow the HRA would also be contrary to an international treaty, since the 1998 agreement was an agreement between two sovereign states – the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland – said the Committee on the Administration of Justice. This area of work has been an unforeseen complement to our priorities in 2016. Although we have seen the threat of repealing the Human Rights Act and replacing it with a British bill of rights of unknown content as a threat to both human rights in general and the Good Friday agreement in Belfast in particular, we did not foresee last year the existential threat of the campaign for Brexit and the vote leave. One of our key priorities was to deliver on the unfulfilled human rights promises and commitments set out in the agreement and to commit more and more to a true rights-based society. The campaign and the vote for Brexit, combined with the increased chances of repealing the Human Rights Act, have forced us to defend what we have: a partially completed, partly successful peace process facing the threat of constitutional insecurity, even chaos and heightened xenophobia.
