The European office for Catholic youth and adult education published the english version of its position paper in regards to the negotiations on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) as well as the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA).
In the context of trade agreements the EU-Commission categorized education and public services as a sensitive sector. The EU-Commission emphasizes that the EU will refrain from making any commitments concerning publicity funded health, education or social services. Thus it lays down that the Member State governments will retain their right to take measures with regard to certain services according to their own discretion. This may include the way in which they provide public funding or state support and decide who can operate or invest in their market. Governments will be free to do so even if it means that they will treat EU suppliers or investors differently from the ones based in the state of the respective contracting party. Publicly-funded education are included in the services mentioned, primary and secondary schools and colleges and universities in particular. We welcome and appreciate the sensitive approach taken. However, it is vital that the same approach should be taken towards the entire field of education, including publicly funded non-formal education.
