Elaine Fahey and Marija Bartl of ACELG and ACSECL examine politico-legal aspects of the Transatlantic Trade Partnership under negotiation between the EU and US currently in an Opinion in the EUObserver.com, on 18 March.
The Transatlantic Partnership (TP) poses fundamental politico-legal questions with potentially far reaching implications for our future. They ask what is being created, wittingly or otherwise? Who controls it? Who adjudicates its disputes? What are the democratic credentials of such an entity?
