The Geopolitics of TTIP

Repositioning the Transatlantic Relationship for a Changing World

By Daniel S. Hamilton

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) under negotiation by the United States and the European Union promises to unleash significant opportunities to generate jobs, trade and investment across the North Atlantic. Yet TTIP’s geostrategic impact may be as profound as its economic effects.

The Center for Transatlantic Relations has brought together strategists and experienced practitioners from many different countries to explore TTIP’s geostrategic implications. Authors explore whether TTIP is likely to strengthen or subvert the multilateral rules-based order; what it means for close allies, rising powers, and poorer countries; geopolitical dynamics among Atlantic and Pacific actors; and implications for the broader transatlantic relationship itself.
