A Stronger Voice for Indigenous and Local Communities in WIPO's work on Traditional Knowledge, Traditional Cultural Expressions and Genetic Resources: The WIPO Voluntary Fund

A Stronger Voice for Indigenous and Local Communities in WIPO's work on Traditional Knowledge, Traditional Cultural Expressions and Genetic Resources: The WIPO Voluntary Fund

Ratings: (0)|Views: 32 |Likes:
Booklet nº 3 of a series dealing with intellectual property and genetic resources, traditional knowledge and traditional cultural expressions/folklore.
The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) launched a fresh policy initiative in 1998: a holistic program of work on traditional knowledge (TK), traditional cultural expressions (TCEs)/expressions of folklore and genetic resources (GR). From the beginning, this program has posed unique challenges.
The work is fully global in perspective, considering international responses to concerns about how TK, TCEs and GR are used and disseminated worldwide, but also intrinsically local, recognizing the needs, expectations and cultural and intellectual perspectives that are integral to the very identity and environment of traditional and local communities.
