May 11, 2015 | News

(11 May 2015) – The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung foundation has published a study on the “Risks and Opportunities for Consumer Welfare Arising from the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP)”.

The aim of this study is to analyse and evaluate the current state of the negotiations and the public debate on TTIP with regard to its consumer-policy implications.

To this end the authors develop an evaluatory framework that enables to measure the effects of the relevant instruments for removing non-tariff trade barriers on the individual dimensions of consumer welfare.

Established in 1925 as the political legacy of Friedrich Ebert, Germany’s first democratically elected President, the Friedrich-Elbert-Stiftung (FES) foundation is Germany’s oldest organisation to promote democracy, liberty, justice and solidarity.
