The IP-NGOs project aimed to:

  1. Gather evidence on the extent of recent NGO activity in relation to intellectual property and the multilateral institutions, ascertaining what interests NGOs represent, what campaigning activities and methods are used and what successes NGOs have had in the context of discussions and negotiations on intellectual property issues that have taken place in multilateral institutions.

  2. Identify the extent and significance of relationships between 'Northern' and 'Southern' NGOs in relation to intellectual property issues.

  3. Investigate the significance of relationships between NGOs and developing countries in the context of intellectual property issues and multilateral institutions.

  4. Examine the extent that linkages have emerged between NGOs and industry.

  5. Assess the significance of current institutional arrangements for NGO participation at multilateral institutions in relation intellectual property issues and to consider whether new mechanisms are required to enhance the engagement of NGOs with multilateral institutions.
