Objetivo

TTIP

Este seminario aspira a debatir las principales cuestiones que se están negociando en el marco del TTIP, lo que representa para las empresas y los consumidores de los estados miembros de la UE, en particular para España, y cómo la asociación propuesta posiblemente podría reconfigurar el patrón de la gobernanza económica vigente a nivel global. En última instancia, el seminario pretende responder a la pregunta de si el TTIP reforzará o debilitará la posición de la UE en la gobernanza económica mundial.

 

Con la presencia de investigadores que estudian diversos aspectos económicos, jurídicos y políticos, así como cuestiones de integración regulatoria, el evento se centrará en temas de actualidad desde una perspectiva interdisciplinaria.
