Nico Schrijver professor emeritus in Public Law and State councillor at the Council of State has been appointed by the European Union and the United Kingdom as a member of the Arbitration Panel which is authorised to settle disputes on the EU-UK Withdrawal Agreement.

The Withdrawal Agreement was concluded in 2019 following the decision of the United Kingdom to withdraw from the European Union (Brexit). The Agreement includes provisions, among other things, on civil rights, financial regulations, agreements on the application of the rules on the internal market and State aid, provisions on intellectual property and a special protocol on the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland.  

The list of 25 European members for the Panel was selected on the basis of their independence and their knowledge and expertise on EU law and public international law. Besides Nico Schrijver,  Corinna Wissels was also appointed to the Panel. Like Schrijver, she is a State councillor at the Council of State and she is also deputy justice at the Trade and Industry Appeals Tribunal.
