Abstract

This report on the Trans-Pacific Partnership raises serious concerns about the plurilateral, mega-regional trade deal, with an analysis that the TPP puts the interests of corporations before the interests of people and core democratic principles. The Haas Institute’s report analyzes the TPP from three main lenses—democratic participation, transparency, and public accountability—examining the ways in which the TPP is a particular affront to these key principles.
