This Zoom event has been organised by Global Justice Now. They write:

Logo of Global Justice NowWith the US-UK trade negotiations starting again in the midst of the coronavirus crisis the issue of how international trade deals affect our economies, our environment and our governments ability to respond to crises like Covid-19 is back on the agenda.

We’ll be looking at how trade rules underpin the corporate structure of the global economy, what the Trump administration’s trade agenda is, and how the pandemic could lead to a new wave of corporate court (ISDS) cases – and what to do to change this.

With:

  • Sharon Treat (live from the US), senior attorney at the Institute of Agriculture and Trade Policy in the US, and previously a state legislator in Maine
  • Cecilia Olivet (live from Brussels), researcher at the Transnational Institute and a member of the 2013-15 Ecuadorian government commission to audit the country’s bilateral investment treaties.
