Write one-page max on Brexit and Northern Ireland. The Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland (part of UK) are now in the EU. What does this mean for their common border? Open? Closed? Free passage of goods and people? What might happen to the border if the UK exits the EU (Brexit)? Might that hurt Ireland? Is PM Boris Johnson in favor of Brexit? Is president-elect Joe Biden? Explain.
What are LGBTQ Rights? What do the Copenhagen Criteria have to do with LGBTQ Rights in Poland and Hungary? Why does the EU care? What other issues have generated friction between the EU and Poland and Hungary? Can the European Commission force its views on Poland and Hungary?
