The EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA): A good deal for the European Union?

The EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) is considered as a ‘deep’ and ambitious agreement.The objectives behind CETA are not only the search for additional growth and the promotion of bilateral trade and investment, but also the deepening and strengthening of EU-Canada relations and to exploit synergies with TTIP. After the recent debate on the effects of trade agreements, a solid and comprehensive analysis is required to understand what this deal means for both its signatories.

To this end, CEPS and the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) are organising a two-day conference to analyse the most debated aspects of the agreements, offering insights and perspectives from both sides of the Atlantic.
