We all want to make sense of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP): the what, the why, and the how of this agreement is important.
Well, look no further, because we’ll be coming to you live with some of the brightest minds working on examining the TPP and what it means for all of us. And we’ll be joined by Nobel Laureate and economist Joseph Stiglitz!
The event will be taking place from 9:30am EST - 3:00pm EST.
The event will consist of a morning panel with:
Gus Van Harten, Associate Professor - Osgoode Hall Law School - “Who has benefited financially from special privileges in the TPP for foreign investors in ISDS?”
Meghan Sali, Digital Rights Specialist, Open Media “IP, copyright and Canada’s digital future”

Then Joseph Stiglitz will be our keynote speaker at 11:30am EST.
In the afternoon panel, we will be joined by:
Professor Ron Labonte, Canada Research Chair Globalization and Health Equity and Ashley Schram “The TPP and health. Few gains, some losses and many risks”
Jeronim Capaldo, Research Fellow Global Development and the Environment, Tufts University “Unemployment, Inequality and other Risks in the TPP”
