It is more than a game-changer, but the best chance the transatlantic West has to advance a liberal world order for the 21st century.

The three treaties, the "Three Big T’s", aim to create a new international legal regime that will allow transnational corporations to bypass domestic courts, evade environmental protections, police the internet on behalf of the content industry, limit the availability of affordable generic medicines, and drastically curtail each country’s legislative sovereignty.

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), which is currently under negotiation between the US and the European Union, remains closely guarded by negotiators and big corporations have been given privileged access. The public cannot read it.

This is the main reason why US President Obama, European Council President van Rompuy and EU Commission President Barroso officially gave the green light to TTIP negotiations in February 2013.
