Seminar: The geopolitics of TTIP

With a keynote speech by Jaime García Legaz, Deputy Minister for International Trade, Spain

The talks on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) are surrounded by controversy. European concerns about investment arbitration, transparency, and environmental and health standards have fuelled public opposition to a transatlantic trade deal. But absent in the debate about TTIP is a fair consideration of its foreign policy and strategic impact: What does a successful TTIP mean from a foreign policy perspective? And what could its strategic merit be? How will TTIP affect third countries? And what happens if a deal does not materialise?
