Interdisciplinary Conference on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership

From the 14th to the 15th of March, 2016, the Centre for European Research at the University of Gothenburg (CERGU) is hosting an interdisciplinary conference on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) between the EU and the US that is currently under negotiation. On the one hand, many appraise the positive effects of TTIP, which is expected to increase the EU economy by billions of Euros and create several hundred thousand jobs. On the other hand, given its broad geographical coverage and its comprehensive scope the prospects of an EU-US trade deal have attracted significant criticism.

This conference aims at enabling a dialogue between research and policy on pertinent issues for a Swedish, European and international community. One ambition of the conference is to gather scholars from the fields of economics, law, and politics to exchange views and provide different perspectives on common issues. However, the event also engages policy-makers, practitioners and business representatives from multinational corporations and SMEs. The panels are going to cover topics reaching from the broader effects of TTIP, its political and economic dimension to particular policy fields such as issues of regulatory cooperation and investment protection, including the proposed investor-state dispute settlement. Moreover, addressing issues related to global governance and inviting third-country perspectives on TTIP, this event attempts to takes a global perspective beyond the EU-US policy domain
