This symposium will focus on the following three themes: (1) the increased politicization of policy debates with respect to IP & information law; (2) the trending contemporary revival of CLS themes in IPIL scholarship, and (3) the emergence of tremendous public participation IPIL policy debates. The goal of this symposium is to discuss these topics in relation to various recent developments, some of which will surely proliferate between now and the day of the symposium.
