The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership or “TTIP” has been making headlines across the EU and the US over the past months. Petitions against this free trade agreement have been signed by hundreds of thousands and protest actions have taken place across the Member States. In this short podcast, recently posted on our Public International Law Notes blog, partners Christian Leathley and Andrew Cannon look behind the headlines to consider some of the key issues being debated in relation to investment protection and ISDS and the implications of the outcome for investors investing from one market into the other.
