Gregory C. Shaffer, Alternatives for Regulatory Governance Under TTIP: Building from the Past Colum. J. Eur. L. (2016).
This article evaluates the current negotiations under the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) regarding regulatory cooperation from the perspective of over two decades of transatlantic effort. It examines six basic approaches for transatlantic regulatory cooperation and addresses the lessons to be learned from past efforts and their failures. It evaluates what can be done that would be new and could lead to regulatory learning and improvement in an economically interdependent world characterized by risk and uncertainty, while reducing the costs of duplicate, overlapping regulatory standards impeding trade.
