Drawing Lessons from NAFTA to Better Understand TTIP

The Berlin Forum on Global Politics (BFoGP) discussed the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), on Saturday, May 2, from 19:00, at the Rosa-Luxemburg Stiftung in Berlin.

14391291462_2bf9964dd5_bThe event, organized by Mexico Via Berlin, sought to analyze the similarities and differences between TTIP and the North-Atlantic Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), established in 1994 by the United States (US), Canada and Mexico. Prof. Nayar López Castellanos, from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), looked at NAFTA and its consequences while we focused on TTIP. Together we discussed how the case of NAFTA can help us anticipate the type of implications that a free trade agreement like TTIP can carry, not only for the US and the EU, but also for third countries.

We are always expanding our partnerships so as to involve more institutions and people in our projects. Our latest collaboration partner was Jonathan Florez, Berlin-based photographer and citizen journalist, who documented the event and captured, through images, the audience’s conclusions about the debate.

This event was part of a seminar series, organized by Mexico Via Berlin, which examined the work done in the context of the Mexican chapter of the Permanent Peoples Tribunal (PPT). Further information about the event and about the seminar series can be found here: http://mexicoviaberlin.org/
