This front matter section of the book Human Rights and Intellectual Property Rights: Tensions and Convergences contains the table of contents and an introduction. The relationship between human rights and intellectual property rights (IPRs) has been a subject of intense discussion during the last two decades among various stakeholders around the globe. The adoption of the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) at the international level and strengthening of intellectual property (IP) protection standards at bilateral and regional levels have intensified discussions on the subject during recent times. It is recognized that the issue of the relationship between human rights and IPRs is of a complex character and requires a thorough understanding of the nature and scope of both rights.
