The UK government’s stated objective in relation to Brexit is to ‘take back control’ and at the same time ensure as close access to the EU’s internal market as possible. What is the situation one year after the UK started the Brexit process (triggered Article 50)? We have invited UK experts to discuss the situation and the status of the negotiations. In addition we have brought together experts from the three EEA countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway to discuss the likely effects on the EEA countries.
Status of Brexit:
Julie Smith, Department of Politics and International Studies (POLIS), University of Cambridge and the House of Lords
Christopher Lord, ARENA Centre for European Studies, University of Oslo
Atle L. Wold, Department of Literature, Area Studies and European Languages, University of Oslo and the British Politics Society
Effects on EEA countries:
Christian Frommelt, the Liechtenstein Institute
Jóhanna Jónsdóttir, Institute of International Affairs, the University of Iceland
Hans Petter Graver, Department of Private Law, the University of Oslo
The seminar will be held in English.
The event is organised as part of European Union’s Jean Monnet Project 'Post-Brexit Europe: Lessons from the European Economic Area (EEA)'
