The Transatlantic Trade & Investment Partnership (TTIP): Prospects and Challenges for EU-US Economic Cooperation: A Conference of the Miami-Florida Jean Monnet Center of Excellence
While the debate surrounding the planned EU-US trade agreement TTIP is increasingly contentious in Europe, in the US there exists little information or discussion outside of a small policy circle. Since the negotiation of TTIP has taken longer than expected, and a conclusion is in doubt, a review of its prospects, challenges and impacts is needed. We aim to understand the ways in which different socio-political attitudes toward trade, globalization, and enviornmental standards come into play in these negotiations. How to Americans and Europeans view free trade? How do political actors on both sides of the Atlantic imagine their roles in the negotiations? How does TTIP imprint in a global context?
EUC affiliated faculty Dr. David Bullock, former EUC visiting scholar Dr. Canan Balkir, and EUC Associate Director Dr. Maxime Larivé will all present at this conference.
