TTIP: Threat to Democracy and the Constitutional State

The TTIP. the largest free trade zone comprising 800 million of the EU and the US, is being secretly negotiated. Democracy and the constitutional state are threatened by 3-person arbitration courts where corporations can sue states and decisions are irreversible. A parallel system of adjudication is created that favors foreign investors and endangers social and environmental regulations.
