The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) - Implications for Global Development

Event Type
Brown Bag Lunch

Location/Date
Bonn, 03.06.2015

Organiser
German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE)


The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is currently the subject of heated debate – but with a narrow focus. The debate is primarily concerned with the impact of TTIP on Germany and Europe. Too little attention is being paid to the implications of this mega-regional for the rest of the world.

TTIP is an attempt by the European Union and the United States to define new rules of play for the world economy with potential global application. From a development policy perspective, this exclusive approach gives cause for concern, as it precludes emerging economies and developing countries from negotiations.

Axel Berger and Clara Brandi of DIE’s Department on World Economy and Development Finance will discuss the effects of TTIP on developing and emerging economies and on the global trading System and outline how TTIP can be made more development-friendly.
