Day 2: Sessions

(Closed attendance, held under the Chatham House Rule)

Six half-day sessions will discuss the mechanics and strategies for putting the public interest agenda expressed in the Washington Declaration on Intellectual Property and the Public Interest into action. Each workshop will be separately organized by a coordinating organization. The sessions will have two main goals: (1) to identify forums and opportunities for actions; (2) contribute to a Global Congress Research Agenda identifying pressing research and analysis needs and resources.

The inputs from the sessions will be combined by the coordinating organizations into a proposed agenda for debate at the General Assembly. The Congress will also record commitments of participants to act in the coming year.
