Re: Ang.: [DFRI-listan] TPP, IPR-kapitlet

Jag tänkte mig det som ett tips om man är intresserad av hur diskussionerna går i de rum där det här eventuellt beslutas.

Kan du utveckla vad du menar med "tips"?

Är ditt tips att folk ska gå dit och demonstrera? Dela ut flygblad?

Om det är det så kanske du kan tipsa om vad det ska stå på banderollerna och vad som ska stå i flygbladen?

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership Negotiations


The Swedish Institute of International Affairs (UI), in collaboration with the US Embassy in Stockholm and the National Board of Trade, invite you to a seminar on the new US-EU trade and investment partnership agreement currently being negotiated. How are the negotiations proceeding, what are the big challenges - and what is this new partnership really about?

In the coming weeks, the United States and the European Union will hold the second round of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) negotiations. The overall ambition of these negotiations is to reduce most of the trade barriers across the Atlantic, open services, spur innovation, and align and lift regulatory standards. If the partnership becomes a reality it could have great impact on the United States as well as the European Union’s economies. At the same time, there are many challenges ahead and there are also those who are concerned about the consequences for trade globally of such an agreement.

The seminar will look at what this partnership would mean and why it is important for the EU and the US. How does the EU negotiate and what is the room for manoeuvre for the US delegation? What are the most difficult topics? Has the government shutdown in the US impacted on the process?

András Simonyi, Ambassador and Managing Director of the Center for Transatlantic Relations at the School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University, Washington.

Anna Folkesson, Trade Policy Adviser, Department for Trade Agreements and Technical Rules at the National Board of Trade.

Magnus Rydén, Department for International Trade Policy at the Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
