Working Papers

i-call Working Papers are the result of research that takes place through the i-call (International Communications and Art Law Lucerne) research centre, which focuses on the fields of media law, intellectual property (IP) and art law, international trade law and legal sociology. Reflecting this, the working papers deal with the legal challenges of globalisation and a digital networked environment at the intersection of IP, cultural diversity, cultural heritage, human rights and international trade regulation, including issues relating to Indigenous peoples.
