Canada and EU trade talks: The backdoor to ISDS endorsement | The consumer view on TTIP

Canada and EU trade talks: The backdoor to ISDS endorsement | The consumer view on TTIP | ALE: Grand Marché Transatlantique | Scoop.it

ISDS has been so heavily criticised in the ongoing TTIP negotiations that the European Commission launched a public consultation on the matter. Including the ISDS clause in CETA creates facts and precedents before the consultation ends in July. This is even more stunning as the consultation text is largely based on what is in CETA.

The European Consumer Organisation is concerned that if a CETA deal is sealed including an ISDS clause before the public consultation concludes, it might serve as a Trojan horse for US firms to use their Canadian affiliates to file ISDS claims in Europe.

We urge the Commission and Member States not to rush into finalising the trade talks with Canada until the ISDS issue in TTIP has been resolved.

TAFTA: Down with Anti-Democratic US-EU Negotiations! | La Quadrature du Net | ALE: Grand Marché Transatlantique | Scoop.it

Paris, 11 November 2013 — While the second negotiation round of the US-EU Trade Agreement, TAFTA (also known as TTIP), has just started, La Quadrature du Net issues a solemn warning to all negotiators against the risk of elaborating policies that would impact hundreds of millions of citizens without any form of democratic legitimacy.
