The EU-Iceland Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) met in Reykjavik (Iceland) on 18 September

The 12th JPC meeting took place in an interesting global context. As other EEA countries, Iceland is tightly interwoven with the EU, mainly through its participation in the Internal Market but it also enjoys close cooperation with the EU in a number of other areas. Therefore, it is also indirectly affected by the many challenges that the EU is currently facing.

The Members of the JPC discussed a wide range of issues, including:

  • state of play of EU-Iceland relations,
  • lessons from Iceland's pioneering gender equality policies,
  • foreign and trade policy cooperation,
  • challenges for Iceland in view of the possible UK withdrawal from the EU.
