Brexit, Norway and the EEA
‘Brexit, Scotland & the EEA: The Nordic half-way house option’
Tuesday 20th March 6pm to 8pm
Sponsored by Ivan McKee MSP
Brexit makes it more likely Scotland will soon be negotiating its own relationship with Europe. But what will that be? Full EU membership or the expensive “halfway house” inhabited by Norway and Iceland?
What’s life like in the EEA? Frustrating – since decisions and regulations are made elsewhere. But worthwhile?
Christophe Hillion is professor of European Law at the universities of Leiden and Oslo and researcher at the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs and at the Swedish Institute for European Policy Studies. He has advised several European governments on EU legal issues.
He discussed the impact of Brexit on the EU and on the EEA.
