Multi-stakeholder partnerships play an ever-growing role in the delivery of public goods in many development sectors. Public-private partnerships (PPPs) in particular have proliferated over the years and become important features of global development efforts. The expansion of PPPs has many implications for the global governance of intellectual property (IP).
These partnerships respond to both market and government failures in the production and dissemination of public goods, while also addressing the huge regulatory coordination issues inherent in the production and distribution of these goods.
Despite their growing importance in global governance generally and IP governance specifically, PPPs remain under‐examined and under-researched.
In this context, this dialogue facilitated the sharing and advancement of knowledge on this emerging arena of global intellectual property governance. The dialogue encouraged a discussion among prominent experts on the content and approach to be followed in a forthcoming book, to be released in early 2017, on this important topic. Many of the book’s contributors including academics, practitioners, policy makers and experts from international organizations engaged in the dialogue, which covered sectors ranging from public health and education to energy and green technologies.
