Oslo, January 2018 – Hosted by ARENA Centre for European Studies at the University of Oslo

Open event: 


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.
