Johan Adriaensen argues that the trade package contained in Jean-Claude Juncker’s State of the Union speech in September 2017 presented a coherent vision for how EU trade negotiations could move forward, with avenues for discontent at future agreements to be channelled through representative institutions.
However, implementing these ideas will be far from straightforward, and it is unclear whether the EU will be able to prevent the kind of opposition to future trade agreements that it experienced in both the CETA and TTIP cases.
