As the EU-US Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) negotiations are still ongoing, this trade partnership has been a concrete example of a negotiation where European citizens are claiming for more transparency. Ms Mungengová will discuss if the decision-making procedures have changed in any way or form as a result of the public demand for transparency? Furthermore, she will discuss the TTIP in general as far as future prospects and challenges ahead.
