	Intellectual Property and Human Rights
	Conference and Roundtable Discussion

	February 21-22, 2013
	American University Washington College of Law 
	4801 Massachusetts Ave NW
	
	ABSTRACT
	This meeting will bring together scholars who are working to map
the doctrinal and strategic intersections of intellectual property and
human rights, and will include publication opportunities in a
forthcoming book. Applications to participate are due January 22 at
http://www.jotformpro.com/pijip/iphr

	On Thursday, February 21, there will be a public conference on
intellectual property and human rights, which will be webcast live and
archived. The event will focus on three distinct sets of issues being
explored as part of a forthcoming book project edited by Molly Land and
Peter Yu: (1) the right to free expression and enforcement of copyright
on the internet; (2) the intersection of intellectual property laws and
rights to benefit from culture and scientific progress; and (3) the
right to health and access to patented medications. The conference
welcomes presentations from participants who not wish to be involved in
the project and on topics outside these three main themes. Papers
selected for presentation may also be considered for the book project.
There will be no requirement to present or submit a paper in order to
attend. 
	
	On Friday, February 22, registered participants are invited to a
half-day roundtable discussion (under Chatham House Rule) on developing
a working group of scholars and advocates engaged in work at the
intersection of intellectual property and human rights. This
forward-looking discussion will identify opportunities and priorities
for collaboration on research, teaching and advocacy in the coming
year(s). Topics may include discussion of new ideas and late-breaking
developments that a HRs-IP network or consortium should explore as part
of its agenda. The group will also discuss developments in other forums
where intellectual property and human rights issues are being or will be
considered. 
	
	If you are interested in participating in either or both events,
please register by January 22, 2013, at
http://www.jotformpro.com/pijip/iphr
<http://www.jotformpro.com/pijip/iphr> . To be considered for a
presentation slot on February 21, please fill out the abstract section
with a submission of no more than 500 words. No abstract is required to
attend, including to attend the roundtable discussion on February 22.
