The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) - Challenges and Opportunities Ahead
The Swedish Institute of International Affairs (UI), in collaboration with the US Embassy in Stockholm, invite you to a seminar on the US-EU trade and investment partnership, TTIP, currently being negotiated.
What are the attitudes toward the free trade agreement in the US and Europe? What are the opportunities and challenges ahead in light of the new European Commission and Parliament? Will the mid- term elections for US legislators change the composition dynamics to the benefit or detriment of TTIP passage?
Bruce Stokes, Director of Global Economic Attitudes at the Pew Research Center in Washington, DC.
Christian Leffler, Managing Director, EU's European External Action Service (EEAS) for the Americas.
Susanne Lindberg Elmgren, Research Officer, International Department, Swedish Trade Union Confederation (LO).

The discussion will be moderated by Anna Wieslander, Deputy Director at UI.
The seminar is the third seminar in a seminar series on the new Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership at UI in cooperation with the US Embassy in Stockholm.
