Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP)

EUA Background Paper

Howard Davies

The EU and the US have embarked on negotiations designed to culminate in a major trade deal. Will it lead to unrestricted market access to higher education services? This is not the first time that the issue has arisen. The question is complex, the implications uncertain, and the answer unknown. EUA is following the course of events closely. This background paper looks at:


  • The TTIP in the context of EU trade policy;
  • The ongoing negotiation process;
  • Service industries and higher education;
  • Future developments.

Updates will follow at appropriate intervals.
