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.

Human Rights and Civil Liberties, Intellectual Property Law
Contents:
1. Patents, Profits and the Public
2. The Moral Architecture of Human Rights and Rights of Access to Science
3. The Human Rights Paradox: Intellectual Property Rights and Rights of Access to Science
4. From Moral Ideals to Legal Obligations: THE Genesis of Article 15 ICESCR
5. The UN's Official Thinking on Article 15 ICESCR
6. UNESCO : Biotechnology, Bioethics & the Right to Enjoy the Benefits of Scientific Progress
