This is an interdisciplinary cooperation and book project led by NUPI (Arne Melchior) and Nord University, Bodø (Frode Nilssen). The main aim of the project has been the publication of a book in Norwegian about the consequences for the seafood industry if the EEA agreement is terminated.
Abolition of the EEA is not an easy thing because Norway has a large number of related agreements with the EU beyond the EEA itself, and the EEA Agreement is embedded in laws and practice in a large number of fields. Termination of the EEA could therefore, unless Norway becomes a member of the EU, lead to negotiations with the EU about new modalities of cooperation in many areas.
This raises several issues that have also been relevant in the context of Brexit.
The book, titled Sjømatnæringen og Europa EØS og alternativene, was published at Universitetsforlaget in November 2020.
What are the alternatives to the EEA Agreement? What happens if Norway joins the EU, or if the EEA is terminated? A new book edited by Arne Melchior and Frode Nilssen looks into this.
