The GLAR Podcast - Episode 18

Mega-regional arrangements

ProfMaryFooterThis podcast features a presentation by Professor Mary Footer (University of Nottingham, School of Law), which she gave as part of GLAR's Ghandhi Research Seminar Series on Wednesday, 24 February 2016.

The presentation was entitled 'Business, Trade and Human Rights in Mega-Regional Arrangements: A Relationship to Discover'. It concerned the rise of very large regional trade and investment agreements (so-called 'mega-regionals') in the field of international trade. These include the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the Canada-EU Free Trade Agreement (CETA), both of which have been signed but are awaiting entry into force, and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), which is still under negotiation. Professor Footer's presentation concentrated on one aspect of transnational law - the relationship of business and trade to human rights in these mega-regionals treaty instruments. She aimed to discover the extent to which such mega-regionals encompass business, trade and human rights provisions and how they might be applied as between the treaty partners.

The session was organised and chaired by Dr Anne Thies.
