Legal Studies on Access and Benefit-sharing
Brill/Martinus Nijhoff, November 2012

Brill/Martinus Nijhoff is launching a new book series on legal questions related to access and benefit-sharing. The series will include international (public and private) law studies as well as national/comparative/transnational law studies on innovative ways to foster access and benefit-sharing arrangements between governments, between governments and local or indigenous communities, as well as with private individuals or entities. The series will include publications on the 2010 Nagoya Protocol on Access and Benefit-Sharing (ABS) under the Convention on Biological Diversity, and studies on other ABS instruments and processes concerning genetic resources and associated traditional knowledge of indigenous peoples. The series will also explore other areas of law where regulatory questions related to access (access to biological resources, access to land or natural resources) and to benefit-sharing have emerged or may be emerging, including human rights, climate change, forests, law of the sea etc. Interested authors may contact the series editors: Elisa Morgera, elisa.morgera (at); Matthias Buck, matthias.buck (at); Elsa Tsioumani, elsa (at) Further information …
