CIEL organizes a side-event on human rights, climate change and technology transfer

May 2010

At the fifth meeting of the World Intellectual Property Organization's (WIPO's) Committee on Development and Intellectual Property (CDIP), CIEL brought together experts on human rights policy and technology transfer to discuss how human rights can inform technology transfer discussions.

The speakers included Mr. Robert Archer (ICHRP), Mr. Michael Waibel (Cambridge University), and Baskut Tuncak of CIEL. Ms. Caroline Dommen (QUNO) and Mr. Subhas Gujadhur (Permanent Mission of Mauritius) provided commentary afterward.
