FoEE Conference in Brussel on ISDS on December 9

Share Button

On December 9, FoEE will be organising – together with BEUC (the European umbrella of consumer groups) and AK (Austrian labour organisation) – a major conference on ISDS in trade agreements.

We will be bringing together high level speakers from around the world, from Commission, Parliament, members states, universities, civil society, trade unions and business groups to bring a clear message that ISDS is not needed and not wanted in trade agreements.

Please note it down if you are interested. More info about the program and how to register will follow in the coming weeks.

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) will drive renewal in Europe by supporting renewed growth rates of 1.5% with a boost in economic activity worth €800M!

Is it possible that it will do both?

This process has the potential to be a major game-changer for the coming decades, who will benefit, will there be losers and how will all this impact on us in both the Global North and Global South?

Come and join the discussion at the Comhlámh at the #firstweddebates
