Presenting our Research at International Conferences

The Berlin Forum on Global Politics (BFoGP) will be presenting various academic research results at international conferences throughout March and April 2014. This is an exciting moment for us, since we will also be presenting our first jointly-written academic paper. During the last two months, the BFoGP researched and wrote a paper on the spatial implications of the Transatlantic Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA), more commonly known as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), currently being negotiated between the United States and the European Union. This paper is a result of our continued efforts at broadening the debate on the TAFTA | TTIP, now specifically within the international academic community.

Furthermore, besides the jointly-written paper, we will also be presenting the latest results of our individual PhD research projects.

Below you can find detailed information on the dates and times of the panels at which we will present our papers.
