Would the Norway model mean the UK was subject to the rulings of a foreign court? Morten Kinander (Norwegian Business School) responds to Øyvind Bø's recent post for LSE Brexit. Yes, EFTA states are subject to the decisions of their Surveillance Authorities, but they are not formally bound by them in the sense that the state is subject to sanctions. This is an important distinction because it shows why the EFTA system is able to accommodate the sovereignty of its members. Yet EFTA was not designed for an ever more powerful supervisory structure, and it would struggle to incorporate the UK. This presents a welcome opportunity to refurbish the whole EFTA-pillar.
