TRIPs in India is a political and institutional analysis of the change processes, brought about by requirements in the WTO TRIPs-agreement for stronger intellectual property protection (IPR) in India. While the book presents an in-depth and unique analysis of the political processes leading to amendments in the Indian patent legislation and how the pharmaceutical industry has reacted to this, it is moreover a critical case describing how global governance, brought about by supra-state institutions, de facto impact upon political - and company decisions in one of the world's major developing countries. The book map an important contemporary political process in India (1986-2005) and will especially cater for academics (and their students) in political science and globalisation studies who analyse the topic areas of political decision-making and conflicting interests between global and national political forces. The book will have interest as a comprehensive empirical work as well as discussing theoretical approaches to analyse global political events. Though the book is not a text book, it could be read at courses on graduate-level.
