The 98th GIST Seminar “Intellectual Property and Technology Transfer Provisions in Preferential Trade and Investment Agreements – What Negotiators Can Learn from Textual Analysis “
Variations in text between similar provisions of preferential trade and investment treaties concluded by the same country may often give country negotiators important clues when they are involved in discussions on bilateral investment treaties (BITs) or free trade agreements (FTAs). The speaker will draw on his experience at UNCTAD providing request-based advice to developing countries on what negotiators can learn from comparing/contrasting intellectual property provisions in US, Japanese and European free trade agreements respectively, as well as provide some insights from his recent research at GRIPS on technology transfer provisions in Japanese BITs and economic partnership agreements (EPAs).
