Negotiating TTIP After Brexit
Gregor Irwin, Chief Economist, Global Counsel; Author, Realizing TTIP’s Strategic Potential (Chatham House research paper)
Marianne Schneider-Petsinger, Geoeconomics Fellow, US and the Americas Programme, Chatham House
Negotiators for the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) between the US and the EU have faced considerable challenges including rising trade scepticism and concerns about the impact of a deal on jobs and regulatory standards. Negotiations may now be further complicated by the UK’s decision to leave the EU which could divert political capital, delaying a deal, and which could lead the US to re-evaluate the value of access to the EU market.
In this briefing, Gregor Irwin and Marianne Schneider-Petsinger will assess the strategic case for TTIP, considering this within the context of the UK’s decision to leave the EU. They will also examine the impact that Brexit could have on the negotiations and any deal that emerges.
To enable as open a debate as possible, this event will be held under the Chatham House Rule.
This event is only open to Major Corporate Member and Partner organizations of Chatham House. If you would like to register your interest, please RSVP to Linda Bedford. We will contact you to confirm your attendance.
