    The Starbucks/Ethiopian coffee saga: geographical indications as a linchpin for development in developing countries2008Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    A coalition of Ethiopian coffee producers and the Ethiopian Intellectual Property Office (EIPO) set up a programme to acquire trademarks in important export markets, with a view to increasing the profits on these brands for the producers. In March 2005, the Ethiopian government filed its first US trademark applications for three contested coffee names. After 15 months the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) agreed that the name Sidamo was generic and therefore could not be trademarked. This led to an outcry by some commentators, including NGOs and Intellectual Property Rights professionals. Yet, the arguments in favour of protecting indigenous knowledge under international trade rules as a linchpin for economic development and poverty eradication has been forcefully put forward by African countries and other developing countries in both regional trade negotiations and at the World Trade Organization. With the Ethiopian and Starbucks dispute in mind, James Watson and Jeremy Streatfeild eloquently explain in this piece how geographical indications can be used to enhance the capacity of farmers and economic development in Africa and other least developed countries.

    Bistånd på utvecklingens villkor: en antologi1994Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Synen på biståndet har genomgått stora förändringar under de senaste 20 åren. 70-talets utvecklingsoptimism följdes av 80-talets djupa kris, med en pessimistisk framtidssyn. 90-talet har inneburit en tillnyktring och omfattande arbete har lagts ner på att dra slutsatser av erfarenheterna. Denna antologi presenterar biståndets teori och teknik i ljuset av de senaste 20 årens utveckling. Boken är en uppföljning av "Bistånd på mottagarens villkor", som gavs ut 1974. 2:a uppdaterade och utökade upplagan.

    Förvaltning, ledarskap och institutionsutveckling - på Afrikas villkor: en antologi1996Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Här diskuteras afrikanska organisationer och institutioner och den betydelse dessa har för den ekonomiska utvecklingen. De olika bidragen i boken förenas kring två teman: den afrikanska organisationens styrka och särprägel är det ena, medan det andra behandlar erfarenheter av arbete med afrikanska organisationer i förändring. Författarna beskriver det komplicerade och tålamodskrävande arbetet som krävs för att utveckla institutioner, men understryker också de stora möjligheter som öppnar sig om det sker på mottagarens villkor.

    Migrant remittances, social inequality and restrictive immigration regimes2011Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The case of Cape Verde shows that the relationship between remittances and inequality in migrant-sending countries depends on a number of factors. The situation is thus more complicatedthan the dominant pessimistic view of the 1970s and 1980s or today’s “development optimism” discourse. Among the factors are changes over time in the selectivity of migrants, variations in family organization and differences in impact between permanent and return migration. A policy debate about remittances and inequality needs to include immigration regimes. Migrant-sending countries can reduce the risk that remittances will exacerbate socioeconomicinequality by facilitating the use of remittances for projects that benefit local communities. Destination countries can open up possibilities for legal labour migration, especiallyfor those who are not highly educated, in order to promote, among other things, a more equal distribution of remittances.
