THE INTERNATIONAL INTELLECTUAL

PROPERTY REGIME COMPLEX

 

Michigan State University College of Law

 

April 7-8, 2006

 

DESCRIPTION

 

The year 2005 marked the tenth anniversary of the WTO Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights. Since its establishment, the Agreement has impacted a wide variety of areas, including agriculture, health, environment, education, and culture. Today, intellectual property has become increasingly important in the international arena, and policymakers have actively explored intellectual property related issues in many different international regimes, ranging from human rights to biodiversity and from public health to information and communications. To explore the interaction between these regimes, this conference brings together scholars, development specialists, international relations and trade experts, economists, political scientists, and policymakers from related intergovernmental and governmental bodies. The conference will also explore issues concerning international relations, public international law, enforcement and compliance issues, and the recent proliferation of bilateral and regional free trade agreements.
