Time: 1-2pm
Venue: LAW.G.02, Faculty of Law, University of Waikato

What is the possible effect of the investment provisions of the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA) on the protection and man- agement of New Zealand’s environment?

The TPPA lays down certain standards of treatment to protect foreign investors. A useful guide to their implications are decisions on environmental protection under similar trade agreements. Such decisions are also a guide to likely TPPA consequences in the event of a major environmental disaster.

Lunch and drinks will be provided including vegetarian / vegan options.

Dr Alberto Alvarez-Jimenez will present insights based on his expertise in trade law. A moderated discussion will be led by Professor Barry Barton.

Light refreshments will be provided. Please RSVP to law-pa@waikato.ac.nz for catering purposes.


This event is hosted by the Centre for Environment, Resources, and Energy Law (CEREL).
