Brown Bag Seminar: Epistemic Communities and the Ordolegal Culture of Privatizing International Law
By P. Sean Morris, researcher, Faculty of Law, University of Helsinki
This work concerns the rise of the culture of privatization in international law through intellectual property rulemaking and adjudication. The work explores two lines of questioning to demonstrate how privatization occurs: first, through the existence and participation of epistemic communities in the global law-making of intellectual property, and secondly, by examining the evidence of the investment function of intellectual property rights in investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS).
