European Citizens' Initiative against TTIP and CETA rejected by the EU Commission

Belgium | 16/09/2014 | In response to the ongoing negotiations on the Transatlantic Trade & Investment Partnership (TTIP) and on the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), more than 200 European organizations, including Slow Food, launched a European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI): a tool to request that the European Commission deal with a subject and introduce a legislative proposal. The ECI called on the Commission to repeal the negotiating mandate for the TTIP, and asked for the CETA not to be concluded. Last week, the European Commission rejected the registration of this ECI, stating that the negotiating mandates on TTIP and CETA are not legal acts but rather internal preparatory acts between EU institutions, and therefore not contestable via an ECI. This decision reinforces concerns on the transparency of the negotiations and has been contested by the STOP TTIP alliance on legal grounds.
