This study presents a political economic analysis of the potential impacts on Latin America and the Caribbean as a result of ongoing negotiations between the European Union and the United States on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). Given the standstill of the Doha Development Round negotiations at the World Trade Organization, member states are currently negotiating Megarregional trade agreements. Furthermore, emerging economies such as China, India, Brazil, among others are changing the balance of power in international trade relations. This study thus explores the potential implications that a potential TTIP agreement could bear on global trade governance.
