A recently published paper asserts that progress in agriculture and food issues in the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) will depend largely on the level of ambition in the negotiations as a whole. It argues for negotiation of “a constructive and imaginative agreement on agriculture and food regulations” that would address long-standing irritants. The paper, Agriculture, Food and the TTIP: Possibilities and Pitfalls, prepared by Tim Josling and Stefan Tangermann, is part of the “TTIP in the Balance” project, jointly organized by the Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) and the Center for Transatlantic Relations (CRT) at Johns Hopkins University. It can be downloaded from the CEPS website.
