Congratulations to Senior Journalism Lecturer Barry Finnegan, whose letter to the editor was featured in the Irish Times this week.
The letter was in response to the publication's recent article, The Irish Times view on CETA: a battle already won, discussing the widely anticipated Canada-EU trade agreement (CETA).

He holds an MA in International Relations from Dublin City University and has recently enrolled as a research student at Queen's University Belfast where the title of his PhD is ‘Embedded Neoliberalism and EU Trade and Investment Policy in the Anthropocene: an Ecosocialist Critique’. He is also a member of the Comhlámh Trade Justice Group.
Barry has presented his research on European Union international trade policy to the Oireachtas Joint Committee on European Union Affairs, to the government’s civil service TTIP negotiating committee, at academic conferences, in journals and at numerous presentations, meetings and public debates around the country.
