What’s wrong with TTIP: voices opposing the EU-US trade agreement.

What's wrong with TTIP cover

30/01/2015

Jean has published a collection of essays(1) on the proposed Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) which outlines many of the reasons that the deal should be scrapped.

The collection contains writing that presents the breadth of opposition to TTIP, including:

  • The Royal College of Nursing on what it may mean for our NHS, and the StopAIDS Campaign turns its attention to access to generic medicines;
  • TUC’s Owen Tudor raises concerns about the impact on jobs;
  • Ed Paton-Williams from Open Rights Group highlights how TTIP will undermine digital protections;
  • Molly Scott Cato MEP investigates aspects of financial regulation; and
  • Keith Taylor MEP and Friends of the Earth’s Natacha Cingotti highlight the implications to food safety, animal protection and environmental legislation.
  • There are also sections on the highly controversial topic of the Investor-State-Dispute-Settlement, public services and a view from the USA.

A 2016 slightly revised version of What’s Wrong With TTIP is available here. (The orgininal version is here.)
