South Centre
The South Centre, based in Geneva, Switzerland, came formally into being as an intergovernmental body of developing countries on 31 July 1995. Currently, 49 countries are members of the South Centre. The Centre, however, works for the benefit of the South as a whole, making efforts to ensure that all developing countries and interested groups and persons have access to its publications and the results of its work, irrespective of membership.

Broadly, the Centre works to assist in developing points of view of the South on major policy issues, and to generate ideas and action-oriented proposals for consideration by the collectivity of South governments, institutions of South-South co-operation, inter-governmental organisations of the South, and non-governmental organisations and the community at large. In order to meet its objectives, and within the limits of its capacity and mandate, the Centre also aims to respond to requests for policy advice, and for technical and other support from collective entities of the South such as the Group of 77 and the Non-Aligned Movement.

The "Intellectual Property, Investment and Transfer of Techonology" programme is one of the South Centre's current projects, as part of the larger "Trade and Development" (TADP) Programme.
