This chapter introduces the global debate on IP and presents the core arguments advanced in the book. It begins by placing contemporary global IP debates in the context of long‐standing tensions on IP regulation and the rocky, political road to the conclusion of TRIPS. It then introduces the core elements of variation in developing country approaches to TRIPS implementation, emphasizing variation in timing of IP reforms and in the use of TRIPS flexibilities. The heart of the chapter sets out an analytical framework for explaining TRIPS implementation as a complex political game, involving the interplay of global IP debates, international pressures, and political dynamics within developing countries. The chapter then previews this book's contribution to the international relations literature and global policy debates, and concludes with a note on research methods, sources and the scope of the book.

Keywords:   intellectual property, variation, timing, flexibilities, TRIPS, implementation, international relations, power, international pressure, domestic politics, developing countries
