“The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP): Limiting Policy Space?”
The EU currently negotiates with the USA a comprehensive trade and investment agreement. The talk will provide a brief overview of the objectives, the differences between the trading partners, and the likely outcome of the negotiations. It will focus on the question to what extent the TTIP might limit policy space in the field of finance, consumer protection and labor. Lastly, it will argue that Europe’s Southern Periphery stands most to loose.
