ARENA Lecture 2014 with Europe Minister Helgesen

Norway's first Europe Minister, Vidar Helgesen, will hold the ARENA Lecture 2014. Helgesen will come to Blindern campus on 4 March to talk about Norway's relations with the EU against the backdrop of the 200th constitutional celebration and the 20th anniversary of the EEA Agreement.

2014, the year of the Norwegian Constitution's bicentennial celebration, is also the year of the 20th anniversary of the European Economic Area (EEA) Agreement. Research from ARENA's constitution project NORCONE indicates that Norwegian democracy is undermined by the country's peculiar relationship with the EU through the EEA Agreement and a number of other agreements.

The title of the ARENA Lecture 2014 is:

The year of celebration. 1814 - 1989 - 1994 - 2014.

Norwegian Minister for European Affairs, Vidar Helgesen, will hold the lecture at the Faculty of Social Sciences, Blindern campus.

The lecture will be in Norwegian and is open to everyone. More information here (in Norwegian).

Time: Tuesday, 4 March, 14.30-16.00

Place: Aud. 1, Eilert Sundt house, Blindern campus
