Research focus in the project:
Ali will track the current interpretative activism within the developing countries’ judiciary and legal scholarship to construct a complex dialogue between the constitutional impact of ever broadening intellectual property laws and other balancing Human Rights. His main doctoral research theme is about the forces international copyright law stimulates on the social, political and economic norms of the everyday life of the academia. Nevertheless, higher education and research is a key element of innovation, therefore unbalanced copyright laws impact on higher education may consequence in stagnant development. He suggests that the comprehension of a very complex legal concept such as the implications international copyright laws creates on higher education and innovation in the developing countries, can be understood from the practical issues in the research and academic community in developing countries. Ali will write his articles within the scope of the project.
