The Project

The CETA Implementation and Implications Project (CIIP) is a research project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union and supported by the Jean Monnet European Union Center of Excellence at Dalhousie University in Halifax Nova Scotia. The aim is to bring together scholars and stakeholders in Europe and Canada who are analyzing the programmatic and legislative changes required to bring CETA to fruition in Canada, at the EU level and in member states. The areas to be covered include many elements of this comprehensive agreement including investment, intellectual property, agricultural and other goods trade, environmental and labour elements and impacts.

The project components (workshop, publications, conference and book project) will bring together scholars and stakeholders to discuss and debate the measures undertaken to implement CETA and to evaluate the early aspects of this ratification and implementation. It will bring together scholars and graduate students from Europe and Canada to evaluate and debate the issues surrounding CETA implementation on both sides of the Atlantic. This will provide an opportunity for mutual learning and sharing of knowledge and experiences as ETA is adopted and enforced.
