Docip's Weekly News No. 235


Dear Friends,

The Forty-First Session of the Intergovernmental Committee on Intellectual Property and Genetic Resources, Traditional Knowledge and Folklore (IGC) due to be held form February 8 to 12, 2021, has just been postponed again. We also have no information on any important international meeting starting next week. 

But we are happy to see that our indigenous friends continue firmly in the fight for their rights in the many online platforms and events that surged during the Covid-19 pandemic. And we continue to inform you at our best about it through this newsletter and our social media accounts. I wish you a peaceful weekend and a strong week ahead,

Pascal D. Angst
