From June 23rd to 25th, over 75 organizations from both sides of the Atlantic will meet in DC for the 2014 Transatlantic Consumer Dialogue (TACD). Public Knowledge’s Carolina Rossini will attend the meetings, and on June 25th, Rossini will brief Congressional representatives and staff on the impacts of trade agreements. She will specifically discuss the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and how it limits the United States’ ability to set appropriate policies on copyrights.
TACD is a coalition of United States and European consumer organizations that develops joint consumer policy recommendations to the US government and European Union to promote consumer interests in policy making. It is in the context of the New Transatlantic Agenda (NTA) that was launched in 1995, and the New Economic Partnership (launched in 1998), that the TACD, along with several other transatlantic dialogues, was born.
