    Free Trade Agreements and their effects on Europe’s Labour and Social Rights

    Speech of MEP Helmut Scholz at Rosa Luxemburg Foundation conference; Brussels, June 2017

    Finding a new path for another development for Europe, that was the ambitious title of a conference in Brussels jointly organised by Rosa Luxemburg Foundation, transform network, and Nicos Poulantzas Institute on June 19 and 20, 2017. MEP Helmut Scholz of the GUE/NGL group in the European Parliament opened the first panel. How can we protect the rights of workers and citizens in the process of opening up our economies? What are the challenges we have to face? How can labour clauses and chapters in free trade agreements support labour rights? What are the chances to strengthen social rights in international trade agreements?
