Patents, Human Rights and Access to Science offers a discerning insight into the disputes which have erupted in the constitutional courts of Europe and the US over the grant of gene patents and stem cell patents.

Retracing the rationale for the juxtaposition of private and public rights of access to science in international law, this book develops a normative framework to analyze the contribution of the UN, ECOSOC and UNESCO in elaborating on the normative content of Article 27 UDHR and Article 15 ICESCR.
