Policy Research

The ASK Justice project team and network hope to empower civil society organisations engaged in intellectual property (IP) law and policy frameworks by providing useful research-based evidence. Our team of researchers are conducting case study research at universities in Botswana, Kenya, Uganda and South Africa, and are looking specifically at IP law and policy frameworks in these countries. TheseĀ are also being scrutinised at regional level in the East African Community. In each instance the role of international law, international organisations and other external influences, such as foreign expertise, is taken into account, since these factors have an impact on IP law and policy.
