Public–private partnerships (PPPs) play an increasingly prominent role in addressing global development challenges. United Nations agencies and other organizations are relying on PPPs to improve global health, facilitate access to scientific information, and encourage the diffusion of climate change technologies. For this reason, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development highlights their centrality in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). At the same time, the intellectual property dimensions and implications of these efforts remain under-examined. Through selective case studies, this illuminating work contributes to a better understanding of the relationships between PPPs and intellectual property considered within a global knowledge governance framework, that includes innovation, capacity-building, technological learning, and diffusion. Linking global governance of knowledge via intellectual property to the SDGs, this is the first book to chart the activities of PPPs at this important nexus.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
'At a time in which prospects for normative and technical assistance initiatives to address access to public goods have been overwhelmed by new challenges arising from globalization, digitization, and the failure of multilateralism, this book offers a careful study of public-private partnerships (PPPs) in a variety of sectors, using case studies that offer guidance to policymakers, raise new questions for scholars, and, collectively, outline the contours of new pathways in the design and governance of PPPs, with a distinctive path to advancing access to knowledge and access to technology. The book is a should have - and a must read.' Ruth Okediji, Harvard Law School and the Berkman Klein Center, MassachusettsSee more reviews
'This timely publication explores the complex linkages between the broad policy context defined by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the concrete task of using the intellectual property (IP) system to forge practical partnerships that yield tangible results, examined through the lens of how IP rights are managed within a diverse selection of public-private partnerships. In distilling practical and policy insights from this rich vein of experience, and analysing equally diverse approaches to managing IP rights to leverage public benefit, this landmark volume opens up possibilities for a more nuanced, more grounded and more enabling understanding for policymakers of the complex roles and potential contributions of the IP system in efforts to achieve the SDGs; and it equally provides direct guidance for those engaged in the practical planning and management of knowledge-based programmes for sustainable development [and] marks a substantial advance towards the informed and empirically grounded inquiry.' Antony Taubman, World Trade Organization
'This timely book covers a very important trio of topics, and is a 'must-read' for anyone interested in current issues relating to intellectual property and its broader social and developmental goals.' Edward Kwakwa, World Intellectual Property Organization
'The twenty first century will be increasingly driven by the globalization of knowledge goods. How should intellectual property be governed in public–private partnerships if they are to comply with sustainable development goals? This impressive collection brings together concrete experiences to draw lessons for future directions in global governance of knowledge.' Sakiko Fukuda-Parr, The New School, New York
'This book makes a long overdue contribution to the understanding of public–private partnerships (PPPs) and their role in global knowledge governance. PPPs are often found on the intersection of private intellectual property and public interest. Their variety is as plentiful as the views expressed in this book which makes it a must read for anyone interested in the question of whether PPPs address intellectual property and development challenges effectively or worsen them.' Ellen 't Hoen, Medicines Law and Policy and Global Health Unit, University of Groningen, The Netherlands

A FIRST-CLASS NEW HANDBOOK AND A GREAT INTERNATIONAL COLLABORATION FOR GLOBAL COMMUNITY ECO-JARGON An appreciation by Elizabeth Robson Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers and Phillip Taylor MBE, Head of Chambers and Reviews Editor, “The Barrister” It is now recognized that the politically controversial public-private partnerships (PPPs) enjoy what the editors, Margaret Chon, Pedro Roffe and Ahmed Abdel-Latif, describe as an “increasingly prominent role in addressing global development challenges”. Cambridge University Press (CUP) have brought together 27 influential contributors on these important and developing fields of law. Do begin the book by reading the excellent Foreword by Ricardo Melendez-Oriz, the head of the International Centre for Trade and Sustainable Development (ICTSD). The mission is simply explained: “building bridges between different stakeholders” and “advancing mutually acceptable solutions to complex issues”- the team do that in spades! Throughout the work, it’s important to recall that UN agencies and other organizations rely on PPPs to “improve global health, facilitate access to scientific information, and encourage the diffusion of climate change technologies”. And it’s for this reason, say the writers, that the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development highlights their centrality in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). At the same time, the intellectual property dimensions and implications of these efforts remain under-examined. Through selective case studies, this detailed and comprehensive work contributes to a better understanding of the relationships between PPPs and intellectual property. The relationship is considered within a global knowledge governance framework, that includes innovation, capacity-building, technological learning, and diffusion. Linking global governance of knowledge via intellectual property to the SDGs, it is the first book to chart the activities of PPPs at this important nexus at a time of considerable change. Of course, PPPs are now an essential feature of the global development landscape and what the editors call “a fixation in development discourse and practice”. The title is a first attempt to look more closely at PPPs and IP “within a more capacious knowledge” of “governance framework”. The contributors review this relationship with public health and other fields such as education, information and communications technologies (ICTs), libraries, agriculture and climate change. We found the work quite a heavy read but, with perseverance, the end results offer a fresh insight into one of the biggest issues we face today in global development challenges. Thank you very much for this important statement on these challenges for the 21st century, and for the final conclusions in chapter 19 on the triple interface containing Margaret Chon’s findings and suggestions on future directions. This important handbook was first published in 20th September 2018.
