Call for Papers : Journal of International Trade Law and Policy

The Trans-Pacific Partnership

At the signing ceremony for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) which took place in Auckland in February, the Joint Statement issued by the signatories noted that the Agreement would “set a new standard for trade and investment in one of the world’s fastest growing and most dynamic regions” with the goal of the agreement being “to enhance shared prosperity, create jobs and promote sustainable economic development for all of our nations.” The parties will now turn their attention to the completion of their respective domestic processes.

In recognition of the fact that the signatories of the TPP comprise nearly 40 percent of global GDP, a market of more than 800 million people, and around one third of world trade, the Journal of International Trade Law and Policy is pleased to invite Papers from scholars from the disciplines of economics, law and politics to reflect on all aspects of the TPP. The Journal welcomes papers on all aspects of the TPP from domestic implementation issues, through analysis of the agreement itself, to the impact of the agreement on the WTO.
