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

Secret Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP)
Today, 13 November 2013, WikiLeaks released the secret negotiated
draft text for the entire TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) Intellectual
Property Rights Chapter. The TPP is the largest-ever economic treaty,
encompassing nations representing more than 40 per cent of the world’s
GDP. The WikiLeaks release of the text comes ahead of the decisive TPP
Chief Negotiators summit in Salt Lake City, Utah, on 19-24 November
2013. The chapter published by WikiLeaks is perhaps the most
controversial chapter of the TPP due to its wide-ranging effects on
medicines, publishers, internet services, civil liberties and
biological patents. Significantly, the released text includes the
negotiation positions and disagreements between all 12 prospective
The TPP is the forerunner to the equally secret US-EU pact TTIP
(Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership), for which President
Obama initiated US-EU negotiations in January 2013. Together, the TPP
and TTIP will cover more than 60 per cent of global GDP.
