Invitation Only Research Event
Chatham House | 10 St James's Square | London | SW1Y 4LE
Although negotiations for the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) have stalled since the election of President Trump, the recent agreement with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker opens the door for renewed US-EU trade talks.
In this simulation of transatlantic trade negotiations, there will be a focus on how the current era of nationalistic and protectionist politics could impact these talks. The day-long exercise will utilize Chatham House’s new simulation centre. On the day of the simulation, participants will be presented with a hypothetical scenario and will have to react to new developments as they occur.
The event will seek to gain insight into some of the most pressing questions regarding the future of transatlantic trade. Will US departments and agencies involved in trade policymaking be able to speak with a unified voice? Will there be unity among EU member states in reviving transatlantic trade talks, and how will the UK leverage its post-Brexit position?
The event is generously supported by the London office of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation.
Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
