INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY: WIPO-WTO COLLOQUIUM FOR IP TEACHERS

Publication: the IP Colloquium Research Paper Series

The publication of the Colloquium Papers was conceived in 2010. It collates individual contributions by participants on the various subjects covered in the colloquium so that they can be shared with those who did not get the opportunity to attend the course, and help sustain the intellectual exchanges that characterize the programme.

The publications (downloadable on the right) aim to facilitate awareness and debate on intellectual property (IP) issues of direct relevance to developing countries across a broader and more geographically diverse and representative base than is common in much published scholarship on IP law and policy.

After each year’s colloquium, participants are invited to submit their papers in a form suitable for academic publication, to be considered for inclusion in the published volume of selected papers. The Editorial Board comprises senior WIPO and WTO experts, emerging IP academics from among past colloquium alumni, and three IP scholars of international repute to ensure that the publication includes papers of sufficient quality, diversity, contribution to scholarship, and relevance to emerging or contentious issues that are at the frontier of the evolving IP systems of each author’s country or region; and also to provide objective guidance on topics that would be of interest to a wider audience of scholars, analysts, policymakers and the general public.
