Canada Minus: How a UK-EU FTA Incorporating the Withdrawal Agreement and Northern Ireland Protocol would be Inferior to CETA

Collins, D. A. ORCID: 0000-0002-5517-6949 (2020). Canada Minus: How a UK-EU FTA Incorporating the Withdrawal Agreement and Northern Ireland Protocol would be Inferior to CETA. International Trade Law and Regulation, 2021(1),

Abstract

This note considers the effect of the Withdrawal Agreement and Northern Ireland Protocol on the future trading relationship between the UK and the EU following the conclusion of the Brexit Transition Period. It suggests that these instruments will undermine the benefits of an FTA for the UK, detracting severely from the Canada-style EU FTA by imposing considerable infringement on UK economic sovereignty in relation to trade in goods with Northern Ireland and a continued role for the CJEU in a manner unlike conventional international treaties.
