Presentation Overivew

Trade and investment agreements often contain commitments that oblige signatories to make significant changes to their intellectual property (IP) policies and practices. This seminar will examine the policy space available to developing countries to better align their IP policies to their national development needs in light of the World Trade Organization (WTO) Agreement on Trade-related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS Agreement) and various preferential trade and investment agreements that go beyond the minimum standards of the TRIPS Agreement. The speaker will draw upon his nine years of experience leading the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development’s Intellectual Property programme, which provides request-based policy advice and legal training to developing countries on IP and cross-cutting development issues such as access to medicines, access to genetic resources and associated traditional knowledge, competition and technology transfer.
