Differentiated integration - Jean Monnet module - Erasmus+
Wednesday 6 November, professor Lise Rye gave a public talk on Norway's relationship with the European Union at Suhmhuset in Trondheim.
In this lecture, prof. Rye offered a long-term perspective on Norway's policy on Europe, from the Norwegian Constitution's limits to waiving sovereignty and Norway's current affiliation with the European Economic Area. The main questions addressed were: What happened in the relationship between Norway and the EEC/EU in the period between Norway's two membership referenda? How did Norway, the country voting no, end up as the EU's most integrated non-member?
The event was free and open to the public. See also the Facebook event.
On 26 November, Prof. Lise Rye presented the Jean Monnet-module at the NTNU European Conference in Brussels.
On 15 October 2018, the team behind the JM-module organized a public debate meeting on the effects of the EEA Agreement on the Norwegian labour market. The panel consisted of Line Eldring from Fellesforbundet - a trade union organizing more than 147 000 workers in construction, industry, farming, hotels, restaurants and graphical sector; Morten Harper from No to the EU – a civil society organization that opposes Norwegian membership of the EEA; and Peter Brandstrup from the European Movement in Norway, which is supportive of continued Norwegian membership of the EEA. Lise Rye from the NTNU European Studies programme moderated the debate.
