Dear readers, despite our commitment, Eutopia Magazine is forced to suspend its publications due to a lack of funds. Our adventure comes to an end for the moment but we hope Eutopia’s journey will resume soon. All our articles will still be available for reading. Thank you for having supported Eutopia until now.

The spirit guiding those who initiated and negotiated the TTIP agreement involved a very strange conception of democracy: trade was elevated above the real values and aims of the EU and its member states. Trade interests predominate in policy related to agriculture, environment, consumer protection, energy and resources. They influence the provision of public services, the negotiation of contracts, and even the legislative process.
