rading on New Terms: Civil Society and North American Free Trade

Laura Macdonald

What will be the impact of the new USMCA trade agreement?

How have civil society organizations (from both business and non-business sectors) attempted to influence the nature and content of the negotiations?

What is the impact of the Liberal government’s Progressive Trade Agenda, which promises greater consultation around trade policy?

Carleton University’s Laura Macdonald, a Professor in the Department of Political Science, raises these questions and more at a day-long symposium organized into three panels. Join scholars from Canada, Mexico and the United States, and civil-society representatives, in a discussion of this important topic.
