Internationaler Handel, sexuelle Belästigung, Pharma, Osteuropa, Neue Rechte

Es ist nicht ganz zufällig, dass Marta als erste entdeckte, wie das ungarische Fernsehen systematisch AfD-Politiker als vermeintlich normale deutsche Bürger ins Programm einbindet. Sieben Jahre lang hat sie für den ungarischen öffentlich-rechtlichen Rundfunk als freie Deutschlandkorrespondentin gearbeitet. 2017 kündigte sie, weil Ungarns Regierung in kritischen Journalisten keine notwendige Kontrollinstanz sieht, sondern eine Bedrohung. Bei CORRECTIV hat Marta zuletzt mit ihren Recherchen über sexuelle Belästigung beim WDR für Aufruhr gesorgt und die flächendeckende Aufarbeitung in Gang gesetzt. Am liebsten recherchiert sie zu Handels- und Wirtschaftsthemen, von lebensbedrohlichen Versorgungsengpässe durch Medikamentenhandel in der EU bis hin zum damals geplanten Freihandelsabkommen TTIP. Auch die Methoden der Populisten und die Verbreitung ihrer Politik behält sie europaweit im Auge. Zuvor arbeitete sie mehrere Jahre bei der Kurt Lewin Stiftung für Toleranz und Demokratie in verschiedenen Forschungsprojekten.

Why we investigate TTIP

There are many rumors about the Free Trade between the EU and the USA. We want to know more because the negotiations have an impact on all of us. This website explains the Free Trade and shows the dealer in an interactive network analysis. But this is just the starting point for us. We will observe the negotiations on the long term, we will investigate and analyze what is important about TTIP.


EU Plan for TTIP Arbitration Tribunals

The EU’s plan to introduce private arbitration tribunals for the free trade agreement TTIP has met harsh criticism. Now the EU Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmström (Liberals, Sweden) has made a new proposal to calm her critics. It would give the states a greater power of influence over TTIP arbitration tribunals. And it seeks to end the current dispute.


Exclusive: TTIP-Leak

Prompted by the release of over 100 secret TTIP negotiating documents by CORRECT!V earlier this summer, trade commissioner Cecilia Malmström ruled that the detailed report of the 10th round of negotiations should be available only in a special reading room in Brussels. Barely anyone has seen it. In spite of this, we were able to acquire a copy of an official report on the 10th round of negotiations concluded in July. We are publishing the original document – because we still believe that transparency is essential for TTIP.


35 square meters of transparency

German MPs can now read the secret TTIP consolidated texts but are not allowed talk about what they read. A restraint document obtained by shows the harsh penalties in case of disclosure.


Tariffs dropped to zero

The EU had offered to eliminate most of the tariff lines entirely during the trade negotiations with the US. CORRECTIV has now published a confidential document: the detailed list of the tariff offer. It shows which products could become cheaper for consumers – some industries on the other hand fear competition from cheaper US goods. Some firms will profit from continued protective tariffs.


TTIP: EU exporters worry about US harmonisation issues

TTIP is supposed to harmonise standards to avoid unnecessary double testing, but in the US standards and norms are often set locally and not on a federal level. For Europe, this means that the central promise of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) might not be kept because US negotiators are not actually in a position to decide on these regulatory issues.

Inside CETA

Together with the French daily "Le Monde" we looked into the 1500-page treaty to see if criticism still holds and whether governments are just playing down risks.
