In December representatives from many of the largest nations in the Asia-Pacific region will converge on Auckland for the latest round of negotiations for the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA).

TPPA is a trade and investment agreement between 12 nations including New Zealand, Australia, the United States, Canada, Chile and Malaysia. So far it has largely avoided public discussion and its human rights implications remain unknown.

Please join HRLA for a symposium focusing on those human rights implications, positive or negative,  and how TPPA's provisions intersect with the our fundamental rights. We have representatives and experts from all sides of the debate, and there will be plenty of time for your questions.

 

Participants:

    Associate Professor Steve Hoadley

    Lori Wallach, Director of Global Trade Watch division of Public Citizen

    Daniel Kalderimis, investment arbitrator at Chappman Trapp

    Professor Jane Kelsey

    Sanya Reid Smith, Third World Network

    Stephen Jacobi, NZ-US Council

 

Target audience: Lawyers and members of civil society who wish to know more about the processes.

 

Location Stone Lecture Theatre, Building 801, University of Auckland Law School, 9-17 Eden Crescent, Auckland
