Climate Change, Technology Transfer and Intellectual Property: Options for Action at the UNFCCC
In his dissertation, the author examines the issue of whether intellectual property poses a barrier to technology transfer to address climate change and if so, what policymakers should do at the multilateral level. The book refocuses the question away from empirical approaches toward the key question of the legal capacity of developing countries to prospectively restructure their economies to access technologies and move up the technology value chain. It concludes with a set of recommendations for action at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
The author defended his dissertation Oct. 15, 2014, at Maastricht University in the Netherlands.
