In the light of recent political developments in the UK, there has been an increasing appetite to learn more about alternative European models. This roundtable was a good opportunity to explore the workings of the EEA and the Swiss arrangements with a set of highly distinguished panellists. The of the discussions was to outline the operation of these frameworks and highlight some crucial differences between them and the EU arrangements.

Our panellists include:

  • Sven Norberg, Senior Adviser, KREAB, one of the negotiators of the EEA Treaty
  • Cath Howdle, Deputy Director, Legal and Executive Affairs, EFTA Surveillance Authority
  • Georges Baur, Assistant Secretary General, EFTA
  • Hannes Boner, General Counsel, Sappi Europe (SEU)

The event took place under the Chatham House rule
