This chapter examines the role of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). It reflects on the WIPO's mandate in an international environment in which competing visions of the IP system continue to engender challenges to the norms WIPO is tasked to supply and defend. It discusses the WIPO's role in the implementation of the Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property (TRIPS) Agreement, and the WIPO and TRIPS Agreement in relation to public health.

Keywords:   World Intellectual Property Organization, intellectual property system, Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Agreement, TRIPS
