Abstract

This report was commissioned by PSI to raise awareness of PSI affiliates about the implications of Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA) for healthcare, water, energy, and municipal sectors.

The main research questions are:
1. Which corporate players are involved in TISA negotiations through their networking and lobbying arrangements, highlighting companies involved in the four sectors;
2. How will government (central, regional and local) actions to change and expand public services be influenced by TISA conditions in the four sectors;
3. What are the implications of TISA for the process of re-municipalisation taking place in energy and water and potentially in health/social care?

Geographical scope
The research will focus specifically on the implications of TISA for the following countries:
Australia, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Pakistan, Peru, South Korea, Turkey, the United States, and the European Union,
