Professor Fredrik Sejersted, University of Oslo
Chair: Dr Julie Smith, University of Cambridge


The Norwegian and Swiss models of European integration have been a frequent reference point in the debate about the UK's membership of the European Union.  The speakers will discuss the looser relationships Switzerland and Norway have with the EU, the costs and benefits, and what lessons the UK can learn from these.

This event is supported by the European Commission Representation in the United Kingdom.
