Under what conditions may public-private partnerships (PPPs or P3s) involved in multilateral development policy advance public interest goals in global intellectual property? This chapter begins to assess how non-profit partners within certain development policy PPPs generate and/or implement norms, thereby impacting public policies that promote both innovations as well as access to those innovations. It brings pertinent literature in the area of global administrative law to bear on these emerging but already embedded institutions of private policy-making. As hybrid actors operating across polyglot transnational networks, the practices of these PPPs illuminate and deepen both global governance and intellectual property scholarship. Among other things, they reveal PPPs as significant but not frictionless regime-straddlers linking the legal domains of trade, intellectual property and development.
