Interview conducted between Montreal, Quebec & Auckland, New Zealand 26:39 min

Listen to an interview with Jane Kelsey, prominent critic of capitalist globalisation and professor of law at the University of Auckland. In this interview Kelsey outlines a critique on the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement, a multilateral trade and investment accord spanning nations across the Pacific ocean, negotiations currently involving the governments of Australia, Brunei, Chile, Malaysia, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, U.S. and Vietnam. In this interview Kelsey details the potential impacts of the multilateral 'free trade' accord on national regulations on workers rights, the environment and indigenous land rights. Importantly this interview connects contemporary corporate-driven trade policies to histories of colonization in New Zealand but also globally. -- Stefan Christoff (January 2011)
