Event Details


As the UK Government and opposition parties struggle to define their vision of Brexit, attention has turned back to the European Economic Area or ‘Norway model’, which allows access to the European Single Market without membership of the European Union.

Professor John Erik Fossum (University of Oslo) will present the findings of his new book with Hans Petter Graver:

Squaring the Circle. Could the Norway Model Work?

The book provides an overview of the Norway model, an assessment of the likelihood that the UK will adopt (parts of or all of) this model. It draws some lessons for the UK, and some reflections on the possible effects on Norway.There will be a response by Dame Mariot Leslie (former UK Ambassador to Norway) followed by a general discussion. We will finish with a glass of wine at 19.30
