About Patent Games in the Global South

In this thought-provoking analysis of pharmaceutical patent law-making in emerging markets, the author takes the three different examples of Brazil, India, and Nigeria, and tells the story of patent law-making within each of them.

Adopting a historiographical approach, focus is drawn to the role of history, social networks and how relationships between a variety of actors alter the framing, and subsequently, the responses to national implementation of international patent law. In doing so, the book reveals why the experience of Nigeria - a country active in opposing the inclusion of IP to the WTO framework during the Uruguay Rounds - is so different from that of Brazil and India.

This book makes an original and useful contribution to the further understanding of how both states and non-actors conceptualise, establish and interpret pharmaceutical patents law, and its domestic implications on medicines access, public health and development. Patent Games in the Global South was awarded the 2018 SIEL–Hart Prize in International Economic Law.
