The Political Economy of Pharmaceutical Patents: US sectional interests and the African group at the WTO

Sherry S Marcellin
Ashgate (November 2010)

A fresh, multidisciplinary and exciting look at the making and remaking of pharmaceutical patents at the GAT/WTO, utilising a Coxian political economy of continuity and change in the global political economy (GPE).

Marcellin addresses the role of the transnational drug industry in the making of the patent provisions in the original TRIPS Agreement, and consequently the role of the African Group at the WTO in the remaking of patent provisions.

  • Dr Sherry Marcellin is a research officer for intellectual property and global civil society at LSE Global Governance.
