Critical Legal Approaches to TTIP: On Method, City University 20 June 2016


Date: 20 June

Time: 5PM

Location: A130, College Building, City University London

Series: On Global Law, Justice and Regulation Series

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Agreement (TTIP) is understood as one of the most controversial trade deals of all time. The TTIP negotiations appear to have generated substantial fears at national and EU level, as to the transfer of authority to a new living entity as a form of global governance. The negotiation of multiple global ‘mega regional deals’ such as TTIP necessitates a broader view of what is at stake and why in the process.

This dialogue involves scholars critically examining the negotiations from the perspectives of private law, civil liberties and international law to consider their approaches to methodology and their own critical method.

Free and open to the public.
