The socio-environmental impact of the agreements between economic blocks and the lack of participation of society in their discussion are both features of this position paper.

The position paper analyzes the impact of the Bi-regional Association Agreements between Mercosur and the European Union and Mercosur and the European Free Trade Association, which aim to promote trade liberalization between the blocks in different economic sectors. The document suggests the interruption of the ratification of the Agreements since, besides the potential negative socio-environmental and climate impacts they present, they have been discussed behind closed doors, without the participation of civil society and other international observers. Besides the democratic issue, the text highlights the neocolonial character of the agreements based on the stimulus to deepen the international division of trade, as well as its consequences for economic development and human rights.
