ICEL SEMINAR

Professor Carl Baudenbacher, President of the EFTA Court

 

The EFTA Court – an All-Ireland Solution for Brexit?

 

Wednesday 10th May 16:30 - 17:30 (Registration from 16:00)

DDRC, Distillery Building, Church Street, Dublin 7

Exclusive to members of the ICEL.  Click here to join.


The UK’s future relationship between the United Kingdom and the European Union remains open. One of the options floated, has been for the UK to join the European Economic Area (EEA) on the EFTA side. The EEA extends the EU’s Single Market to three EFTA countries: Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein. These countries are simultaneously members of the European Free Trade Association (EFTA). They are not subject to the jurisdiction of the Court of Justice of the European Union, but to that of the EFTA Court. While Prime Minister Theresa May has written that the UK does not seek to remain part of the Single Market, the UK Government’s position on the 'fourth freedom,' the free movement of persons, has softened.

Professor Carl Baudenbacher, President of the EFTA Court, will explore whether the EEA model, or a bespoke variation of it, would be a suitable way forward for the UK, and ensure the harmony and soft-border between the island's two countries.

 

Registration is now open and this event is free and exclusive to members of the ICEL.
