Objectives Ex-post evaluation

The main objectives for the ex-post evaluation (i.e. module 1) are as follows:

  • Highlight and evaluate the actual economic, social, and environmental impacts (both immediate measurable effects and consequential impacts) of the agreement on both sides.
  • Identify sectors, activities and groups that have gained as a result of the FTA and specify the most relevant provisions thereof for such effects.
  • Identify sectors, activities and groups that have been negatively affected as a result the FTA and specify the most relevant provisions thereof for such effects.
  • Identify unintended consequences of the entry into force of the FTA.
  • Pave the way for future ex post analysis of the EU’s FTAs, notably by identifying suitable methodological approaches to measure impacts of the FTA on the social and environmental dimensions.
