In the globalization of intellectual property rights, Matthews discusses various aspects of the TRIPS agreement: agenda definition, legal interpretation, implementation, implementation and revision – from the perspective of global trade interests and developing countries. The argument is that the agreement is largely the result of an initiative by multinationals that have tried to protect their own intellectual property through international law and that, moreover, these multinationals are now their main custodians. The book concludes that the history of the TRIPS agreement and the role of the economy are a clear example of governance by non-state actors at the global level. This book will be of interest to students and researchers in the fields of international relations, intellectual property law, international business law and development studies.
