:: Logic Should Prevail: A New Theoretical and Operational Framework for the International Regime on Access to Genetic Resources and the Fair and Equitable Sharing of Benefits
The essay adopts a critical approach to the concept of "sovereignty" and its role in the ABS debate, grounded in ideas and proposals that have been circulating since the 1990s (theme one). The object of interest–genetic resources–are extremely difficult to submit to controls designed for tangible and physical matter (theme two). The integrating theme of this essay is that the interpretation of "sovereignty" in the debate has been counterproductive for developing an efficient and equitable International Regime on ABS.
