Geneva, 18 October 2016 - What's the problem with TTIP?

The Jacques Delors Institute, in partnership with the Graduate Institute of International and Developmental Studies, organises a conference on October 18th 2016 in Geneva about TTIP negotiations and its late problems.

Cerainly, the outlook for negotiations on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is in real doubt.

The looming deadline of the US presidential elections makes a rapid agreement before the end of the year unlikely. At the same time, the signing of a bilateral agreement between the EU and Canada, CETA, set for the end of October has reinforced the mobilisation of a strong opposition, particularly in certain member states, seeking the suspension of Europe’s trade opening projects.

While EU trade ministers recently voted to continue negotiating the agreement, debate rages on about TTIP’s goals and expected benefits, and about the legitimate fears it generates. This event debates how bilateral discussions are likely to move forward, and assesses the prospects for an ambitious trade agreement with anti-globalisation protests growing on both sides of the Atlantic.
