  • ​ ​Comprehensive analysis of the new generation of EU agreements that include TRIPS-plus IP standards
  • Critical examination whether the development promise contained in most of these EU agreements actually holds true in light of the agreements' IP provisions
  • ​Written by some of the most renowned experts on international IP law and policy​
​​​​ ​This book focuses on a new generation of bilateral and regional agreements negotiated by the EU with developing countries and which include intellectual property (IP) provisions setting standards exceeding those of the TRIPS Agreement. The contributions critically analyse the IP standards found in these agreements; their potential for reforming the international IP system; the implications for the multilateral IP system and other areas of international law such as human rights; and the often neglected topic of implementing the IP obligations in these agreements.​
