We collected the common myths about JEFTA and scrutinized their accuracy in a short paper. In doing so, we came to the conclusion, that JEFTA contains regulations massively restricting the political scope of action of the EU and its member states. These regulations are extremely problematic from a democratic point of view.


In conjunction with numerous civil society actors, we demand a globally just and solidary trade and investment policy, not focussing on the profit of a few, but on the people and the environment. However, JEFTA is not based on such conditions.
