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.
