The Trade In Services Agreement (TISA) is a proposed international trade treaty that is being negotiated between a 50-country subset of World Trade Organization members, which includes the EU and the USA.

Background

The negotiations are taking place in closed-door talks, although corporate trade advisors have special access. After it emerged that the negotiations include discussion of Net Neutrality and Data Privacy protections, civil society organizations raised concerns that large-scale decisions on these subjects could be made with limited public input.[1][2][3]
