Together with the US Government and the EU Commission corporation representatives compose a free trade agreement called TTIP in secret negotiations. It’s goal is to crack down trading obstacles. This vague formulation concretely means, that social, health and ecological standards in the EU will be lowered. Furthermore investment protection agreements between the EU and the USA will be alleged. These agreements will give a nation like legal status to corporations. So international corporations will be able to lever national legislation – in every country.


Questionable advantages

Questionable benefits: The known studies about positive effects of TTIP do have serious shortcomings and they are partly independent. More…

Banks deregulation

Banks deregulation: TTIP is going to prevent further regulations on financial markets and is going to revoke yet achieved regulations. More …

Special status for Corporations

Special status for Corporations: Corporations are able to extend their juristic special position and they are able to defy national legislation in a lot of cases. More …

More privatization

More privatization: Through TTIP communal factors for placing of an order could hardly be considered (e.g. water supply, construction contracts, etc.). This opens the doors for a privatization wave. More …

Cutback of EU standards

Cutback of EU standards: TTIP means Cutback of EU standards in a lot of fields with rough results for food safety, ecology, chemical use and working rights. More …

Secret negotiations

Secret negotiations: Negotiations take place behind closed doors. But about 600 corporation representatives participate. TTIP’s content is hidden from citizens. More …

Less democracy

Less democracy: TTIP undermines democracy and creates breeding grounds for democratic powerlessness. More …


Still we are not powerless! The case ACTA showed: Public pressure and constructive resistance make an impact! We demand to reveal the concrete contents of TTIP negotiations! The EU commission should not sweep the negative aspects of the agreement under the table. The negotiating partners have to discuss problems and search for solutions together with citizens and organizations. Economic growth needs a juristic and democratic foundation! Investment protection agreements within TTIP have to become a public debate. No power shift in favor of international corporations!
