This event will analyze the geopolitical and economic origins of the mega trade deals like CETA, TPP and TTIP, their far-reaching implications and the factors behind their demise potential - as illustrated by the near collapse of the AACC ratification process, the stalemate of TTIP and Donald Trump's promise to abandon the TPP negotiations.
