Will the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership Live Up to Its Promise? — Strategies for Navigating the Domestic Politics on Both Sides of the Atlantic

Featuring Daniel R. Pearson

Whether a TTIP deal is achieved depends on the tenor and substance of the U.S.-EU negotiations. But those negotiations are shaped, to a great extent, by the parameters established through domestic political processes. This session will feature an interview between a host and three discussants who will focus on some of the domestic political landmines within the United States and the European Union, as well as strategies to mitigate risks and bridge political divides.
