Open Society Foundations

Transatlantic Consumer Dialogue (TACD)

Consumers International partnered with the Open Society Foundations to support and strengthen the work of the Transatlantic Consumer Dialogue (TACD) in advocating for the online rights of consumers and citizens and inputting into EU and US political discussions, including trade negotiations. The Open Society Foundations had previously contributed for a number of years to advancing TACD’s work on intellectual property, with meaningful impact in this area. TACD, co-ordinated by Consumers International, is a network of 77 EU and US consumer and public interest organisations, which develop and agree joint policy recommendations in the consumer interest, and input to EU and US political negotiations and agreements, such as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership.
