- Anglo-Irish Agreement
an international treaty concluded in 1985 between the Republic of Ireland and the UK. It recognised the requirement for majority consent within Northern Ireland for any change in its status, established an intergovernmental ministerial conference, serviced by a secretariat, that provided an opportunity for ministers from Ireland and the UK to discuss security, policing, prison policy, law enforcement and extradition, and set up an intergovernmental parliamentary council that permitted members of the British and Irish parliaments to meet to discuss matters of mutual interest. It moved on to such an extent that a Good Friday Agreement was reached, intended to establish a power-sharing devolved government in Northern Ireland. Its first meeting failed to comply with the necessary requirements for its continued function and it was suspended. At the time of writing the Northern Ireland government was reactivated, so there is a power-sharing executive in operation in the province.
