Sammanfattning

In 2003/2004 the Masters of European Affairs Programme looked at IPRs and the relationship between developed and developing countries as it pertained to technology transfer, and specifically the TRIPS Agreement.
They addressed three crucial issues: Can the rules on international exhaustion of IPR provide the means to transfer essential medicines to developing countries? Having determined that exhaustion was not the answer, the masters looked at possibilities of compulsory licensing in emergency situations, and how it has been exercised by developing countries. Included is a section looking at the treatment of indigenous peoples and their traditional knowledge and the biological and genetic resources. Finally the question how the 1992 Convention on biological diversity is related to the TRIPS agreement and a closer look at how disputes under the WTO settlement system are resolved.
