TTIP and the World

Workshop

Venue: Attac Summer University, Paris, 264E
Languages: English, French, Spanish

TTIP is a massive free trade agreement currently being negotiated between the European Union and the United States of America. Much attention is being paid by social movements on the potential harmful implications of the agreement in terms of downgrading labor, social, safety and environmental standards and regulations. However, it is urgent to start a broad and participatory analysis of how TTIP would affect Global South. The purpose of the workshop is to help to articulate alternative international economic agendas and link these to current debates around TTIP.
