Matteo Scotto (ZEI Alumnus, Class of 2015): The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). An Insight into its Transatlantic Relations and Global Context

ZEI Discussion Paper C 238/2016

In the past year, most of European and American citizens could confirm to have heard at least once something about an ongoing negotiation regarding a free trade agreement European Union and United States are likely to sign, namely TTIP (Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership). Thus, after a decade of misunderstanding, during which the two sides of the ocean have never appeared to be so distant, Transatlanticism apparently got back on track by promoting the most significant free trade area both in economic and geopolitical terms. Could TTIP represent the “Renaissance of Transatlantic relations”? Is TTIP the bridge that can reconnect the two sides of the Atlantic? The aim of this work is to understand in which sense TTIP could bring closer EU and US on the one side and strengthen the Transatlantic region vis-à-vis the rest of the world on the other.
