IIED submission to the EU public consultation on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership
This report collates the comments submitted by IIED to an online public consultation on the investment chapter of the proposed Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).
The European Union (EU) and the United States (US) are negotiating TTIP, a comprehensive economic partnership agreement covering both trade and investment. Negotiations started in July 2013.
Public concerns about the investment chapter of TTIP, particularly about investment protection standards and investor-state arbitration, have led the European Commission to organise the public consultation. This report has been prepared under IIED’s Legal tools for citizen empowerment project.
