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.
