Patent Games in the Global South : Pharmaceutical Patent Law-Making in Brazil, India and Nigeria, Hardback Book

Patent Games in the Global South : Pharmaceutical Patent Law-Making in Brazil, India and Nigeria Hardback

Part of the Studies in International Trade and Investment Law series

Description

In this thought-provoking analysis, the author takes three examples of emerging markets (Brazil, India, and Nigeria) and tells their stories of pharmaceutical patent law-making.

Adopting historiographical and socio-legal approaches, focus is drawn to the role of history, social networks and how relationships between a variety of actors shape the framing of, and subsequently the responses to, national implementation of international patent law.

In doing so, the book reveals why the experience of Nigeria - a country active in opposing the inclusion of IP to the WTO framework during the Uruguay Rounds - is so different from that of Brazil and India.

This book makes an original and useful contribution to the further understanding of how both states and non-state actors conceptualise, establish and interpret pharmaceutical patents law, and its domestic implications on medicines access, public health and development.

Patent Games in the Global South was awarded the 2018 SIEL-Hart Prize in International Economic Law.
