Trans-oceanic trade deals and the future of global economic governance

With the Doha trade round mired in gridlock, the US, EU, and major Asian nations have begun negotiations on two enormous free trade zones, one to span the Pacific, the other crossing the Atlantic. The scale of these deals has the potential to significantly alter global economic governance, not just for trade, but also for investment protection, intellectual property, and a host of other issues.

This project works through the likely implications of these deals for other countries, and for the global trading system as a whole. 

This project is conducted in partnership with the Global Economic Governance Programme, which is co-hosted by the Blavatnik School of Government and University College, Oxford.
