The highlight of the seminar was arguably the last session, which was devoted entirely to the presentation of the report “Inside and Outside – Norway’s agreements with the European Union” by the Norwegian EEA Review Committee. The report was made public in Norway just two days before and generated tremendous interest in Brussels in both EFTA and EU circles, as illustrated by the high number of participants. The Chairman of the Review Committee, Fredrik Sejersted, and the Committee’s Secretary, Ulf Sverdrup, offered a comprehensive overview of the various findings of the 911-page report. This was followed by a rich and lively discussion between the speakers and participants, which can be viewed below.
