Today (15-2-2017), the European Parliament will vote on the EU-Canada Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement, an agreement that's been met with its share of controversy. From the onset, when the regional government of Wallonia almost prevented the agreement's formal signing. Though it is expected to be ratified in today's vote, the conversation surrounding this agreement is far from over.
We have invited a number of experts on to dig deeper into all sides and to consider where the debate continues after today's Parliamentary vote.
Joining us today:
Pierre d'Argent, co-organizer of Trading Together and Chair of Public International Law, Catholic University of Louvain (UCL)
Magda Stoczkiewicz, Director of Friends of the Earth Europe
Schams El Ghoneimi, Foreign Policy Advisor at the European Parliament
