Current EU debate is too much about whether Norway should say yes or no to the EUROPEAN union. This is a too polarized view in today's globalised world. Through the EEA agreement secures Norwegian interests in trade, research, peace and climate.

Unfortunately acted debate too much about that, the solution initially came from the EUROPEAN union, rather than the content, and the importance for Norway. Not everything from the EU is bad, but it is not so that everything from the EU is good. Therefore, it is important that Norwegian politicians contributes to a nuanced, fact-based debate as the best safeguard Norwegian interests, instead of a dangerous polarisation of a multi-page case.
Norway is outside the the EUROPEAN union, but we are not outside of Europe. Therefore, it is incredibly important that Norwegian policy is better to discuss the content instead of the packaging when it comes to EU matters, and that the yes and no-since the together lead a good, constructive debate.
