New paper ‘TRIPS IP Waiver Proposal: Creating the Right Incentives in Patent Law and Politics to end the #COVID19 Pandemic' co-authored by Dr Aisling McMahon cited in Nature Editorial

Dr Aisling McMahon (Maynooth University) has published a new co-authored paper with Dr Siva Thambisetty (LSE), Dr Hyo Yoon Kang (Kent University), Dr Luke McDonagh (LSE) and Prof Graham Dutfield (Leeds) forthcoming in the LSE Working Paper Series (2021). The paper entitled ‘The TRIPS Intellectual Property Waiver Proposal: Creating the Right Incentives in Patent Law and Politics to end the COVID-19 Pandemic’ provides a detailed analysis of the current TRIPS waiver proposal. The waiver was first proposed by India and South Africa in October 2020, and is now supported by more than 60 States. It proposes to temporarily suspend intellectual property rights under the TRIPS Agreement for COVID-19 health-technologies, including vaccines, medicines and diagnostics in order to create a pathway to achieve global equitable access for COVID-19 health-technologies.

Conference: Irish Religious Diasporas from the 17th to the 21st century, 17-18 June 2021

On 17-18 June 2021, the GIS EIRE is coordinating a conference on Irish religious diasporas. GIS EIRE facilitates cooperation between universities in a particular research area. Accordingly, three Irish Studies colleagues from the universities of IT Tallaght (Ireland), Lille (France) and Caen, France, decided to bring together their ideas and research interests in Irish religious history and imagined this 2021 GIS EIRE conference which will be specifically dedicated to the theme of the Irish religious diaspora. With our panelists, we intend to outline and explore this area for the first time with the transdisciplinary insights of international scholars from Irish Studies, History, Literature, Diasporic Studies, Ecclesial History and Missiology.
