In an extended one-on-one interview with host Steve Paikin, Prof. David Schneiderman discussed the rules of international trade and investment on TVO's flagship public affairs program, The Agenda with Steve Paikin, on May 8, 2017.

From the TVO program description: Trade deals are almost impossibly complex, especially when it comes to the fine print. And for many people, the Investor State Dispute Settlement mechanism, or ISDS, would probably count as such. But with talk of NAFTA re-negotiations gaining steam, ISDS has become a hot topic. Roughly speaking, it allows companies to sue democratically-elected governments for making policy those companies say loses them money.
