TTIP, Trade and Investment: American, European Views

The creation of a Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership offer economic and strategic opportunities to both the EU and US, but it is not without its challenges. It has sparked criticism, with both EU and U.S. opponents claiming that TTIP may give too much power to corporations, especially foreign investors, and that it could undermine food safety and environmental standards. The seminar will focus on the political, geo-political and economic challenges, the possible impacts as well as recent findings of various opinion surveys on both sides of the Atlantic.
