29 April 2015: The implications of TTIP

29 April 2015: The implications of TTIP

Supporters of TTIP argue that it will stimulate growth and employment in Europe, reinforce the significance of the European market for the US economy and bind the United States to norms and standards negotiated with the EU, thus balancing the strategic scope of Washington’s ‘pivot’ to Asia. But critics argue that it threatens democracy and services and opposition is increasing in EU member states such as Germany, France and the UK. Colin Crouch, Professor at Warwick University, Josef Janning, ECFR Senior Policy Fellow, and Hans Kundnani, ECFR's Research Director, take a look at what factors the European Commission should consider in order to make the TTIP work for everyone.
