Equality

Chapter

Abstract

This chapter explores the principle of equality in EEA law. The principle of equality is established in 4th recital of the EEA Agreement. According to this recital, the objective of the EEA is to establish a dynamic and homogeneous EEA, based on common rules and equal conditions of competition and providing for the adequate means of enforcement including at the judicial level, achieved on the basis of equality and reciprocity and of an overall balance of benefits, rights and obligations for the Contracting Parties. This presumption of equality is explored through three examples, which show the importance of the presumption of equality between the two pillars of the EEA as well as for the actors within the two pillars.
