Writing the ‘rules of the game’ for TTIP is an historic undertaking. In the TTIP negotiations, fundamental clashes between the legal systems and regulatory cultures of Europe and the United States need to be accommodated. What are the main sticking points? What do these tell us about broader legal, political and cultural differences on either side of the Atlantic?
Prof. Anne Meuwese (Tilburg University) will share her insights into what has been dubbed ‘the most dangerous aspect’ of the world’s most far reaching trade deal: regulatory cooperation. Find out what norms and values within institutional law, constitutional law and legal frameworks protecting consumers have to do with the institutions and instruments being devised. Join Studium Generale to explore how trade law can become a vehicle for geo-politics.
Anne Meuwese is Professor at the Tilburg Law School in the Department for Public Law, Jurisprudence and Legal History. Within the field of public law she has worked on 'alternative review of government action', impact assessment, regulatory cooperation, consultation and peer review. Her expertise lies within the area of regulatory cooperation and she has published widely on TTIP and law making cultures therewithin. Anne has undertaken research regarding the actual effects that public law mechanisms have on the behaviour of government actors and in how better design of those mechanisms can improve that behaviour from the perspective of citizens.
