The European Parliament in Trade Policy

LINK TO THE POLICY PAPER ENGLISH

Trade agreements like ACTA, TTIP, and CETA have been widely debated in the EU. This Policy Paper by Laura Wolfstädter, Sophia Becker and Valentin Kreilinger shows how the European Parliament is able to play a major role in the EU’s Common Commercial Policy, building on the relevant legal provisions and its influence in cases like the SWIFT agreement or the EU-South Korea Free trade agreement. It will also have to approve any possible agreement with the United Kingdom about its future (trade) relationship with the EU after Brexit.
