The Nov. 5 event on the Trans-Pacific Partnership features experts from around the world

Days before the presidential election, experts from around the world will convene at the University at Buffalo to debate one of the campaign season’s most controversial economic topics: the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), an agreement that would govern trade between 12 Pacific Rim nations, including the United States.

“One of our hopes is to bring a little bit more nuanced attention to the discussion of the TPP, and to highlight the fact that the way it’s being talked about by politicians and the media is really simplified,” says Assistant Professor of Geography Abigail Cooke in UB's College of Arts and Sciences.
