  • Kenney Auditorium, Johns Hopkins University SAIS 1740 Massachusetts Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20036 United States (map)

Sep 29, 2015 Event Time: Tuesday, September 29, 2015, 8:45am - 12:00pm

Kenney Auditorium, Johns Hopkins University SAIS 1740 Massachusetts Ave NW Washington, DC 20036

The Center for Transatlantic Relations and the Center for European Policy Studies invite you to presentation of a new book together with leading US and European negotiators:


In this new book, independent European and American experts go in-depth to explore TTIP’s ramifications in a range of sensitive areas, ranging from food safety and public procurement to the auto industry and the digital realm, chemicals, energy, services, investor-state settlement mechanisms, technical barriers to trade and regulatory cooperation.

Their insights cut through the caricatures, controversies and confusion swirling around TTIP and help readers understand how the United States and Europe can remain rule-makers rather than rule-takers in a world of diffuse economic power and intensified global competition.
