This event takes a range of perspectives in reflecting upon trade, global governance and future of international economic law. David Henig reflects upon his experiences in negotiating TTIP for the United Kingdom, as part of the negotiations talks for the largest trade deal ever negotiated between the EU and US. It is currently on hold without a future direction of any clarity. Yet important lessons can be garnered from this outcome. Elaine Fahey considers the benefits of the TTIP negotiations and what the EU has learned from negotiating with the US in a new era of hostility to globalisation and awareness and resonance for the voice of civil society. Are institutional or contextual innovations of TTIP to be found in newer EU negotiations or agreements e.g.EU-Singapore, Japan, Australia, what innovations are possible? What is the place of Brexit in this? David Collins considers the future of the global trading order, looking at ongoing difficulties in NAFTA’s re-negotiation, the potential for a US-UK FTA and the highly-anticipated TPP11.
