Trade Deal Watch is a volunteer-run organisation, working towards the sole aim of bringing transparency and public scrutiny to post-Brexit trade deals and the Brexit negotiations themselves.

It was started in July 2016, just after the EU referendum produced a mandate for Brexit. 

Since then, we've seen repeated attempts at secrecy and power-grabbing from some of our politicians and that's exactly what Trade Deal Watch aims to prevent. 

Trade deals affect every part of our lives - from our jobs to our healthcare. It is right that these deals are made in the open, presented to the public for scrutiny and eventually approval.

Trade deal transparency is a pillar of democracy.
