Chapter Summary

This section of the book Human Rights and Intellectual Property Rights Tensions and Convergences contains a list of contributors. The adoption of the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) at the international level and strengthening of IP protection standards at bilateral and regional levels have intensified discussions on the subject during recent times. There are two angles from which this relationship is analyzed. The first dimension of this relationship relates to the question whether the right to IP protection is part of human rights that individuals enjoy, that is, whether IPRs are human rights by themselves. The second dimension concerns the effect that IP rights may have on States' ability to comply with their obligations under international human right treaties, such as the obligation to ensure access to food, medicine and education.

Keywords: access to food; human right treaties; intellectual property (IP) protection; intellectual property rights (IPRs)
