Legal Statement on Investment Protection and Investor-State Dispute Settlement Mechanisms in TTIP and CETA

    Research output: Other contributionNet publication - Internet publicationCommunication

    Abstract

    The goal of this statement is to convey to European decision-makers that a significant part of the legal community finds the investor protection mechanisms within the free trade deals TTIP and CETA to be highly problematic and not compatible with the rule of law. The statement outlines the fundamental legal issues within these mechanisms and explains how they pose grave threats to public interest, democratic principles and state budgets.
