Globalization, Intellectual Property Rights, and Pharmaceuticals

(p.127) 6 Globalization, Intellectual Property Rights, and Pharmaceuticals
Equity and Access

Amit Sengupta

Oxford University Press

The chapter examines the impact of globalization on access to affordable medicines in the context of the changing dynamics of the pharmaceutical sector in India, accompanied by major changes in the country’s Intellectual Property regime. With the initiation of neoliberal economic reforms, India formally embarked on a path of economic development that embraced rather than opposed global integration and harmonized laws. The chapter examines shifts in the domestic policy environment which eventually led to the Indian state beginning to question its earlier stance of defending lower standards of intellectual property protection.
