Arms industry lobbying in Brussels

On 4 December 2017, the arms industry and the EU came together for the European Defence Industry Summit: a lobbying event aimed at “Debating defence from the industry perspective”. Our new infographic published with Vredesactie, Agir Pour la Paix and the European Network Against Arms Trade explains how arms industry lobbying in Brussels is shaping the EU's 'defence' agenda.

Stop ISDS campaign 2019

Two years after the suspension of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), EU member states and the European Commission are preparing mandates for new trade negotiations with the US. Once again corporate lobby groups are working to set the agenda for the talks, while the Commission covers over its links with big business.

New information shows the chilling scope of proposed EU rules on services (the ‘Bolkestein Directive’) that would give the Commission advance veto power over decisions taken by parliaments and city councils on a vast range of services, including everything from childcare, to energy, to water, and even sex work.

New documents increase concerns over the controversial reform to the Services Notification Procedure (“Bolkestein Directive”), which could radically expand EU Commission powers over national and municipal services regulation: 55 files obtained via access to documents requests show the heavy influence of big business lobbies over the proposal.

Member states play a hugely important role in EU decision-making, but too often they act as middlemen for corporate interests. This new report combines case studies, original research, and analysis to illustrate the depth of the problem - and what you can do about it.
