New ‚Brexit’ publication by Christa Tobler
The Maastricht Journal of European and Comparative Law has published an article by Christa Tobler, entitled ‚One of Many Challenges After ‚Brexit’. The Institutional Framework of an Alternative Agreement – Lessons from Switzerland and Elsewhere?’ (Maastricht Journal of European and Comparative Law 23 (2016), 575-594).
The abstract describes the content of the article as follows: “Defining an alternative arrangement for the UK’s future relationship with the Union following the country’s ‘Brexit’ will raise both substantive and institutional issues. In the public debate, the latter tend to be underestimated. The present article is based on the thesis that, should the UK seek a market access agreement based on EU law rules, it will face strict institutional demands from the Union that go far beyond the element, often mentioned in the ‘Brexit’ debate in the context of EEA membership, of having to accept Union-made law as it comes. The thesis is derived from experience with the Union’s legal arrangements with other partners, notably the EFTA States as well the current negotiations with Andorra, Monaco and San Marino.”
