Full Summary:

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) negotiations between the European Union and the United States are the most ambitious trade negotiations ever undertaken in terms of the breadth of coverage; depth of commitments; and economic importance of the participants.  While the substance of any agreement remains unknowable, what is clear is that these negotiations have prompted unprecedented mobilization by firms, civic interest groups and publics.

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) negotiations between the European Union and the United States are the most ambitious trade negotiations ever undertaken in terms of the breadth of coverage; depth of commitments; and economic importance of the participants.  While the substance of any agreement remains unknowable, what is clear is that these negotiations have prompted unprecedented mobilization by firms, civic interest groups and publics.  The distinctiveness of the politics of TTIP prompts two crucial questions:

  1. Why are the politics of TTIP so different from what we have seen before?  Is this new pattern of politics a one-off or a sign of things to come?
  2. How has the new pattern of politics impacted the negotiations to date?  In other words, what are the real world implications of the new trade politics?

This workshop draws together scholars from both sides of the Atlantic to answer these questions.  

The workshop will be held from lunchtime on Friday 29 April to lunchtime on Saturday 30 April (see attached program) on the Georgia Tech campus.  The event is free and open to the public, but space is limited, so please RSVP to Madeline Guillen (at mguillen8@gatech.edu) by noon on Monday 25 April.  Logistical information will be provided upon registration.
