Abstract

While the TTIP leaks are not the first (nor the last) leak since the inception of the negotiation in 2013, they revealed for the first time the US negotiating position regarding certain chapters of the TTIP draft agreement. As such, the TTIP leaks provide an unprecedented opportunity not only to analyse the contrasting positions of the EU and US on several issues in the on-going negotiations, but also to test the veracity of the competing narratives devised by opponents and proponents of the agreement. To what extent do their respective storylines find support in the actual texts? What do the TTIP leaks mean for the on-going negotiations and future agreement?

At a time in which the ongoing negotiations enter a maker-breaker moment, this symposium of the European Journal of Risk Regulation provides a timely analysis of most of the documents released and contextualises them within the broader, on-going negotiations. It contains 10 research-based opinion pieces by leading academics and practitioners who have been closely following the negotiations in their respective areas of expertise, such as international regulatory cooperation, pharmaceuticals, food safety, agriculture and geographical indications, financial regulations as well as sustainable development.

Keywords: K23, K32 TTIP, international trade, FTA, EU, US, regulatory convergence, regulatory coherence, mutual recognition, equivalence, regulatory compatibility, geographical indications, living agreement, food safety, risk regulation, sustainable development, pharmaceutical, agriculture
