By focusing on the wider process of negotiations, this novel volume presents the first systematic analysis of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). The authors include outstanding scholars and relevant practitioners from across disciplines and various academic institutions around Europe and North America, but also from outside of the transatlantic basin. While presenting a thorough examination of the process of TTIP negotiations, the volume is divided into four parts with each part examining a broader theme and offering three or four shorter exploratory chapters that are accessible to academics, students, policy-makers and a wider audience. The volume explores historical and theoretical aspects of TTIP (with chapters by Gamble, Keohane and Morse, Telò), the beginnings of the TTIP talks and the role of individual actors (Mayer, Novotná, Dür and Lechner, Strange), TTIP’s possible knock-on effects and consequences for third parties (Aggarwal and Evenett, Duchesne and Ouellet, Zhang, Ponjaert) as well as impact on multilateral institutions and regimes complexes (Mavroidis, Mortensen, Meunier and Morin, Pauwelyn). The authors highlight dynamics which underline the relationship between the United States and the European Union and argue that TTIP promises to have vast implications not just for economics but global governance and international system.


’This volume addresses a crucial issue of global and interregional trade governance by including an international team of leading scholars from a variety of disciplines and viewpoints. Collectively the authors identify the major stakes and provide a comprehensive and highly competent overview of the main political implications of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership� negotiations from both sides (North America and Europe), while keeping in mind the controversial interplay with global governance and emergent economies. Highly recommended for students, scholars, practitioners and informed citizens looking for critical and solid orientation in a very sensitive and uncertain matter.’ Pascal Lamy, President emeritus of the Paris-based think tank ’Notre Europe’, Jacques Delors Institute, former Director General of the World Trade Organization and European Commissioner for Trade

’TTIP promises to generate significant yet still uncertain implications for transatlantic relations, global governance and the international rules-based order. This volume breaks new ground by helping readers understand the theoretical aspects of TTIP, its meaning for the United States and Europe, and its impact on third countries and multilateral institutions.’ Daniel S. Hamilton, Johns Hopkins University SAIS, USA

’A timely, multi-disciplinary collection on an important subject, this volume will serve as a great starting point for students and scholars trying to make sense of the controversies surrounding the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership.’ Amrita Narlikar, GIGA German Institute of Global and Area Studies, Germany

About the Series

Globalisation, Europe, Multilateralism series

Globalisation, Europe, Multilateralism series

Established and edited by Professor Mario Teló (ULB & LUISS) and Frederik Ponjaert (ULB & Waseda), the Institut d’Études Européennes at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (IEE-ULB) sponsored GEM Series published by Routledge brings together original peer-reviewed publications on: "Globalisation, Europe, and Multilateralism"

Each volume included in the series delves into a given dynamic shaping either the global-regional nexus or the role of the EU therein. Accordingly, the resulting international and interdisciplinary publications offer original insights into: globalisation and its associated governance challenges; the changing forms of multilateral cooperation and the role of transnational networks; the impact of new global powers and the corollary multipolar order; the lessons born from comparative regionalism and interregional partnerships; as well as the distinctive instruments the EU mobilises in its foreign policies and external relations.

The GEM Series’ edited volumes, monographs and textbooks all aim at contributing to further innovation in the fields of European Integration and International Studies. An International Advisory Board with leading scholars from across all five continents further supports the series with input and guidance.

Proposals for, and any contact about, the series in the first instance should be addressed to:
