Public Services Under Attack

October 2015

Our public services are under attack from a new generation of trade deals being negotiated behind closed doors. This report from War on Want and key European partners shows how the EU-US treaty TTIP and the EU-Canada treaty CETA will make any privatisation of public services effectively irreversible in future. The report also highlights the corporate lobby groups that have dictated the EU's agenda, to the long-term detriment of European people. It is published as part of the European campaign against TTIP, CETA and all the EU's free trade deals.
