Experts to discuss Brexit and Norway’s experience with the EU

Sam Wood
How might the UK's experience with the EU differ from that of Norway?

The webinar will take place on Thursday 11 June at 2pm (GMT).

Experts from the University of Kent’s Global Europe Centre, the University of Oslo’s ARENA Centre for European Studies and the University of Surrey’s Centre for Britain and Europe (CBE) will join forces for a Brussels School of International Studies hosted webinar, to explore the issues of Brexit and Norway’s experience with the European Union via Zoom on Thursday 11 June at 2pm (GMT).

The free-to-view webinar: ‘In, Out and Shake It All About: Brexit and the UK-Norway Comparison’ will examine the issue of Brexit and other nations’ relationships with the European Union, with expert responses to questions submitted by the virtual audience.

Questions to be explored include: 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 UK? Can the UK follow Norway in being part of the European Economic Area (EEA) but not the EU?

The panel will include John Erik Fossum, Professor at the ARENA Centre for European Studies, University of Oslo; Richard Whitman, Professor of Politics and International Relations, University of Kent School of Politics and International Relations; Dr Albena Azmanova, Reader at University of Kent’s Brussel School of International Studies, and Professor Amelia Hadfield, Head of Department of Politics, Director of the Centre for Britain and Europe (CBE), University of Surrey.
