A New Generation of Trade Agreements: Trojan Horses entering the European Union

TTIP, CETA and TiSa are the acronyms for trade, investment and service agreements currently negotiated by the European Union. What they have in common is that they put workers’ rights, environmental standards, public services and democratic decision making processes in danger.

The Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung, Brussels Office has organised events and workshops all over Europe to contribute to public education and fuel the discussion on this topic. Slovenia became an EU Member State ten years ago, within the eastern European expansion of the EU. We are going to Ljubljana to discuss what is at stake with Agreements like TTIP for the Slovenian People and Democracy.
