Christa Tobler Speaks in The Hague on the Settlement of Disputes Relating to Brexit

Short News

On 13 February 2018, the Dutch Foreign Ministry organised a Brexit conference on the effects of brexite in legal practice under international and European law. In the context of Switzerland's institutional negotiations with the EU, Christa Tobler gave a lecture on the European legal aspects of dispute resolution.

In particular, she spoke about the principle of the autonomy of the Union's legal system and the resulting restrictions on the drafting of dispute resolution models for EU treaties with third countries. These restrictions are also evident in the context of the Brexit negotiations (withdrawal agreement and, possibly, a future agreement on the post-Brexit relations between the EU and the United Kingdom, depending on the content of this treaty).
