Opis projektuThe aim of this project is the conception of an en-hanced European and participative debate on the issue of TTIP. In this context, a central conference with 100-170 participants will be held in Berlin. Smaller events will be carried out in different countries, each with a meeting or workshop format consisting of 3-50 participants. Additionally, an online platform will be developed to accompany the events. The theme of these events will be centered around the European dimension of TTIP. Various national perspectives will be discussed in relation to the specific chances and risks presented by TTIP, and actors who have primarily worked at the national scale thus far will be brought together via this European platform. Participants will gain new perspectives and serve, in turn, as multipliers within their respective national debates. The forum will be accompanied by the Internet platform, which documents and mediates the discussion amongst European citizens. The participants and target audience consist of European scientists, activists, lobbyists, policy mak-ers and citizens. As lead partner, the ILHR will manage the confer-ence in Berlin. Workshops and meetings will be organized by the partner organizations in the re-spective countries. These partner organizations will also engage the corresponding speakers for the events and will contribute to the development of an innovative format and act as multipliers in order to ensure the project’s sustained impact.
