Transatlantic integration and the TTIPRedacción
Before it even exists, the TTIP has already become one of the most controversial treaties and which most literature has generated. We do not yet know the text (precisely one of the most criticized aspects has been the secrecy with which are being negotiations are being conducted, but we will come back to this) and yet more and more people have an opinion on it from the documents on the negotiations that have been made public and the general principles which -so it seems- reflect its contents.
It is logical that it be so, as the TTIP is intended as an instrument to significantly transform our lives (its likely impact has been compared to that once caused by the creation of the Internal Market) and it is also inserted in a process, that of globalisation, which has deeply affected the economy, society and world politics. The notion that the TTIP goes beyond the technicalities of International Economic Law has some foundation and also I think is correct.
