ACCESS TO KNOWLEDGE IN EGYPT: NEW RESEARCH ON INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY, INNOVATION AND DEVELOPMENT, Nagla Rizk and Lea Shaver, eds., Forthcoming
The conventional wisdom in Egypt, as in many developing countries, examines the issue of intellectual property solely as a question of policing and enforcement. Yet a more critical examination is urgently needed, whereby IP law, policy, and practice are viewed from a development perspective, rather than from an enforcement perspective. Such an approach is explored in the introduction to this forthcoming book, an edited volume featuring original, interdisciplinary research on these themes.
