This paper introduces the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, called TTIP. TTIP is a trade agreement between the United States and the European Union, which is currently being negotiated. The aim of this convention is to open up the markets on both sides. This includes eliminating tariffs and other trade barriers between the two unions, the United States and the European Union. Furthermore, restrictions for commercial services shall also be reduced, security of investment and the competitive equality shall be improved, and not least the access to public contracts shall be simplified at all levels of government. Therefore, the TTIP is a unique joint project which can obtain considerable growth and em-ployment effects (Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Umwelt 2015).
However, there is a lot of criticism and concerns regarding foreign trade between the European Union and the United States, but there are a lot of advantages for both countries as well. Some of the topics are highly controversial mainly due to differing standards and norms of both partners (Beck & Ohr 2014).
