Cele kształcenia:

(tylko po angielsku) The tension between human rights and patent law is apparent in both the Universal Declaration of Human Rights 1948 and the United Nations International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights 1966. Since 1994, the WTO Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) has ensured that the relationship between human rights and the international patent regime has become the focus of a great deal of attention in both developed and developing countries. Students completing the module will acquire detailed knowledge of how the international law of patents has an impact on access to medicines and how this relates to human rights, particularly the right to health.
