A bit misleading title: Catherine Titi and I agree that the EU’s current level of transparency in trade and investment negotiations is quite satisfactory – in Macau Daily Times, 19 May 2017.
A minha entrevista com Fátima Cid para o programa “Falar Direito”, da Rádio Macau, à margem da conferência ‘The European Union’s Common Commercial Policy After Lisbon’, que teve lugar no dia 10 de Maio na Fundação Rui Cunha, pode ser acedida aqui (a partir do minuto 25:50).
On 10 May I will be at the Rui Cunha Foundation with Catharine Titi (French National Centre for Scientific Research and University of Burgundy, France) discussing the European Union’s Common Commercial Policy after Lisbon. Dr. José Sales Marques will be moderating the debate.
Here is a synopsis:
Until December 2009, the conclusion of international trade and investment agreements was a competence of the Member States of the European Union (EU). However, with the entry into force of the Treaty of Lisbon, this competence passed from the Member States to the EU, entailing a new balance of powers between the European Commission, the European Parliament, and national parliaments. The EU’s new competence has been raising significant debate among scholars and civil society, with some accusing the EU’s policymaking process of lacking transparency. The speakers will provide an overview of the EU’s investment policy, analyse the controversy surrounding international treaties such as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and discuss its potential impact on agreements currently under negotiation such as the EU-China Bilateral Investment Treaty.
