Brexit, Scotland & the EEA: The Nordic half-way house option

  • Scottish Parliament EH8 8BS (map)

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 will discuss the impact of Brexit on the EU and on the EEA.

The event will be chaired by Lesley Riddoch, writer and broadcaster.

Following the event attendees are welcome to join us at Hemma, Swedish bar and restaurant, on Holyrood Road.

This event is sponsered by Ivan McKee MSP and supported by the Scottish Government.

Admission is free and all are welcome. For tickets, please click here
