Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is a free trade agreement that is currently under negotiation between the US and the EU. The agreement is likely to make significant changes in Europe’s regulatory and economic landscape but given the secrecy surrounding the negotiation process, public discourse and media reports on the agreement is often unclear and confusing. With my colleagues Mavluda Sattorova and Michelle Farrel, I am organising a conference on TTIP that will take place in Liverpool in June 2016. The aim of this conference is to accommodate different views from the pro and against camps with the objective of contributing to a clearer public discourse with regard to TTIP. Speakers of the day will include academics, activists, politicians and journalists. We aim to attract participation particularly of citizens from Liverpool and the surrounding area to this event. More details will soon be publicised here.
