PIJIP to Host the Fifth Global Congress on Intellectual Property and the Public Interest

 

American University Washington College of Law’s Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property is pleased to announce the hosting of Fifth Global Congress on Intellectual Property and the Public Interest, September 27-29, 2018, Washington D.C.  As with previous meetings, we will have space available for self-organized project meetings and trainings in the preceding days – September 24-26.

The Congress has long defined its objectives as lying at the intersection of scholarship and advocacy, including:

  • the mobilization of existing scholarly research directly into the hands of civil society advocates, business leaders and policy makers, leading to evidence-based policies and practices;

  • the collaborative identification of urgent, global and local research priorities and generation of a joint research/advocacy agenda; and

  • the solidification of an inter-disciplinary, cross-sector and global networked community of experts and practitioners focused on public interest aspects of IP policy and practice.
