  1. Ireland / Northern Ireland: Londonderry and its region, a debated border region in mutations

    Publishing date:

    May 11, 2020

    Londonderry is located in the north-west of the Isle of Ireland, on the southern extremity of the vast Lough Foyle Bay. It is also very close to the border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Londonderry is situated in a very rural and isolated region. The city and its port play a central role in the economy of the region, as far as neighbouring County Donegal in the Republic of Ireland. More than twenty years after the beginning of the peace process in Northern Ireland, Northern Irish society is a post-conflict society that is still deeply marked by intercommunity tensions, which continue to take place in Londonderry, as everywhere else in Northern Ireland. The way Brexit is going to restructure the place and role of the border is bound to have major urban, social and (geo)political consequences in Londonderry.
