    Project Description

    The WTO Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) provides for the international regulation of the knowledge economy. Yet much of its text is legally uncertain, undermining its utililty. This project will provide the first comprehensive scholarly jurisprudential account of TRIPS. This will enable greater certainty and efficiency in the enactment and implementation of compliant domestic legislation. The project will also provide the first socio-legal account of the WTO Dispute Resolution Body and the interpretive methodologies it employs for interpreting TRIPS. The project will also provide a jurisprudential account that promotes formally and substantively just dispute resolution outcomes.
