GATSwatch is a joint project of Corporate Europe Observatory and Transnational Institute. One of the main objectives of the GATSwatch project is research and analysis of the role and agenda of corporate lobbies with regards to the WTO GATS 2000 negotiations. Results will be presented in a series of briefing papers and fact sheets.
GATSwatch supports global networking against GATS through the GATSwatch web site as well as through the GATSwatch mailing list. Outreach is also achieved through workshops and by active participation in strategy meetings.
The GATSwatch website was launched in January 2001. It provides links to key organisations and institutions as well as to key documents on GATS and the GATS 2000 negotiations. It is unique in bringing together the growing body of NGO and academic critique on GATS as well as official government position papers and documents of the corporate GATS proponents.
I regularly update and expand the GATSwatch website. If you find this site useful, or if you have any comments regarding its content, please contact me by e-mail.
