This chapter summarizes the extent to which the ideas of inclusion, empowerment, and access with respect to marginalized groups are taken into account in international instruments and initiatives. Such as as seen in WIPO, TRIPS, and other institutions and instruments, this chapter presents high level survey, a snapshot of where things currently are. Thus, it is largely descriptive and wide ranging, yet forward-thinking. It includes a few discrete suggestions as to where the three main ideas of social justice could be pushed on the international agenda. This chapter also sets the stage for the other chapters in this part which includes articles submitted by authors on intellectual property and social justice in various settings worldwide.
