In the book entitled Human Rights and Intellectual Property: Mapping the Global Interface, authors Helfer and Austin explore the intersections between intellectual property and human rights law and policy. Laurence R. Helfer is the Harry R. Chadwick, senior professor of law at Duke Law School. He is also the co-director of Duke Law School’s Center for International and Comparative Law and a Senior Fellow with Duke’s Kenan Institute for Ethics. Graeme W. Austin is a professor of law at the Victoria University of Wellington Faculty of Law in New Zealand. The authors theorize that the relationship between the disciplines of intellectual property and human rights law has not been adequately analyzed or even considered by academics and practitioners, and that this relationship is in need of new studies that proactively examine the analysis and development of international conventions, treaties and case law. The authors aim to provide substantive materials and original analytical content to help students, academics, and practitioners explore the engagement between both regimes in a productive and coherent fashion.
