Summary/Abstract: Negotiations are ongoing for two of the most significant trade and investment agreements that the European Union has ever entered into. Both the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) with Canada and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) with the U.S. are set to be ambitious agreements, and are already causing controversy beyond the limits of the negotiating table. Given that the CETA talks are more advanced, they can provide some valuable and much-needed insight for TTIP, both in terms of process and substance. Nevertheless there are some issues, linked to the heftier geopolitical weight of TTIP, that CETA cannot help resolve.
