This short contribution addresses the controversy over CETA, TTIP, and TiSA against the backdrop of the EU’s new trade strategy ‘Trade for All’. It takes a general look at how the controversy over the comprehensive EU trade agreements is staged and briefly examines three sites of contestation (economic benefits, the provision of public services, and commitments with regard to sustainable development). It argues that negotiators and proponents of the comprehensive trade agenda failed to present the full picture with regard to the impact of the new generation of agreements. Furthermore, it is argued that the current framing of the debate over EU trade policy disregards the inherent political dimension of the issues at stake and misses the opportunity to facilitate a dispute over the values and visions to be reflected in trade policy.

Keywords:   comprehensive trade agreements, public services, gains and losses, sustainable development, civil society, EU trade policy
