Jean Monnet Forum “The EU and Norway: Challenges and Opportunities in a Turbulent World”

The first Jean Monnet Forum held at the University of Agder on 26 June 2018, was opened by EU’s Ambassador to Norway, Thierry Béchet. The forum included discussions about EU’s impact and role on the regional and municipal levels in Norway.
