In, out and shake it all about: Brexit and the UK-Norway comparison

John Erik Fossum will participate in a webinar organised by the University of Kent on Brexit and the UK-Norway comparison on 11 June 2020. 

Professor Richard Whitman has compared the UK engagement with the EU to the Hokey Cokey – a series of movements in and out of the EU and wanting parts but not others – the relationship between Norway and the EU has its own different engagements, but how far can we compare Brexit with Norway’s own ‘No’ vote in 1972 and 1994? Are any of the reasons for Norway’s ‘No’ vote applicable to UK? Is the “Norway Model” the only model for the the UK? Can the UK follow Norway in being part of the European Economic Area (EEA) but not the EU?

These any other questions will be explored by a panel of experts from BSIS and ARENA.

The discussion will be hosted by Professor Jeremy Carrette, Dean for Europe and Professor of Philosophy, Religion and Culture.
