Indigenous Peoples’ Innovation: Intellectual Property Pathways to Development

Acknowledgements

The chapters in this volume were first presented at the conference ‘Intellectual Property, Trade and the Knowledge Assets of Indigenous Peoples: The Developmental Frontier’ in December 2010. That conference was hosted by the New Zealand Centre of International Economic Law (NZCIEL), at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. The conference was organised in association with the Regulatory Institutions Network at The Australian National University. Susy Frankel is the Director of NZCIEL. NZCIEL acknowledges the support of the conference sponsors Henry Hughes, Patent and Trade Mark Attorneys, and the New Zealand Ministry of Economic Development. Peter Drahos and Luigi Palombi from the Regulatory Institutions Network acknowledge the support of The Australian Research Council (Discovery Grant: ‘The Sustainable Use of Australia’s Biodiversity: Transfer of Traditional Knowledge and Intellectual Property’).

Peter Drahos and Susy Frankel would like to thank the two anonymous referees of the manuscript for their detailed and helpful comments on each of the chapters. Thanks also to Victoria University of Wellington students Lauren McManoman, Michelle Limenta and Anna Ker for editing assistance.
