Trade, investment & intellectual property

Trade, investment & IP 680x220

The work in this cluster looks at the impacts of trade, investment and intellectual property regimes on the regulatory sovereignty and capacity of states and the consequences that flow from those impacts.

Research areas include the role of these regimes in regulatory globalisation; the influence of non-state actors upon these regimes; the institutional capacity of developing countries to meet globalised regulatory standards; the consequences of these regimes for state regulation of health and health equity; the growth in international investment arbitration and its effects on state policy and regulation.
