TPP

Le Partenariat transpacifique (TPP en anglais) a été signé en octobre 2015 entre les Etats-Unis et 11 autres pays de la côte pacifique : l’Australie, Brunei, le Canada, le Chili, le Japon, la Malaisie, le Mexique, la Nouvelle Zélande, le Pérou, Singapour et le Vietnam. L’Indonésie et Taiwan ont aussi déclaré vouloir y adhérer. L’accord est actuellement en phase de ratification.

Le chapitre sur l’investissement du traité comporte le mécanisme de règlement des différends investisseur-Etat (ISDS en anglais). La société civile a fermement critiqué l’ISDS car ce système donne aux investisseurs étrangers des pouvoirs disproportionnés vis à vis des gouvernements ou entreprises nationales. Les compagnies étrangères seraient en mesure de contourner la justice nationale et souveraine et d’avoir recours à une justice parallèle faite exclusivement pour elles.

La santé publique, l’environnement et autres protections d’intérêt public seraient mise à l’épreuve en vertu des clauses sur l’ISDS contenues dans le TPP.
