Project Description

A new network of plurilateral trade and investment agreements is poised to significantly supplant the existing international economic governance structure (the multilateral World Trade Organization and the separate network of bilateral investment treaties). Meanwhile, scholarly and public debate about the merits and implications of agreements such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership continues to grow. This project analyses these developments in order to contribute to a greater understanding of the impact of emerging global economic governance norms on existing multilateral and bilateral agreements and on domestic regulatory governance.
