Mega Free Trade Agreements and Biosecurity In Australia

In collaboration with the Australian Farm Institute, this research on mega free trade agreements and Australian biosecurity explores the shift from bilateral trade agreements to multi-lateral, mega Free Trade Agreements such as the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement. The research highlights how the neoliberal doctrine that supports both free trade and deregulation is incompatible with protecting Australia’s biosecurity.
