ECIPE Seminar: Manufacturing Discontent – The Rise to Power of Anti-TTIP Groups
Launch event for a new ECIPE report.
How do European citizens really feel about TTIP? Dalia Research polled Europeans and found that a majority of EU citizens still feels positive about TTIP. At the same time, opposition to TTIP is extraordinarily high in Germany and Austria, two of the EU’s export powerhouses.
Why exactly do these countries stand out in public opinion? How do Germany’s super-connected anti-TTIP campaign NGOs engage in other European countries? How did Internet campaigning impact on citizens’ attitudes towards TTIP negotiations? What is the role of Russia in anti-TTIP campaigning? And did the European Commission contribute to manufacture discontent about TTIP? We hope you can join us for what promises to be a vivid discussion.
ECIPE invites you for a panel debate and a discussion with Niklas Anzinger (DALIA Research, Berlin) and study author Matthias Bauer (ECIPE, Brussels). The panel will be moderated by Karin Svanborg-Sjövall (President of TIMBRO, Stockholm).
