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.
During this event, Josef Janning presented the policy brief he co-authored for ECFR, A Fresh Start for TTIP.
