"Excessive Protection of IPRs Counter-Productive"

Op-Ed, Business Daily, (Africa)

By Calestous Juma, Professor of the Practice of International Development; Director, Science, Technology, and Globalization Project; Principal Investigator, Agricultural Innovation in Africa

Protecting intellectual property rights (IPRs) is a critical aspect of business development and international partnerships. But excessively protective systems could have a negative impact on creativity and human welfare. It is therefore important to design intellectual property protection systems that take the special needs of African countries into account.

"Innovative Approaches Key to Financing Higher Technical Education"

Op-Ed, Business Daily, (Africa)

By Calestous Juma, Professor of the Practice of International Development; Director, Science, Technology, and Globalization Project; Principal Investigator, Agricultural Innovation in Africa

"There are other long-term measures to support technical higher education, which include providing tax incentives to private individuals and firms that create and run technical institutes on the basis of agreed government policy.

Governments too need to formulate policies that allow experienced government, industry and civil society staff and other professionals to serve as faculty and instructors in these institutions. This can be implemented as part of a national service system or as an effort to expose students to practitioners."
