Examining the impact of the international agreements that address plant genetic resources in agriculture, Andersen (Fridtjof Nansen Institute, Norway) finds that they have led to a situation where many actors have the ability to exclude each other from access to and use of plant genetic resources, thereby threatening conservation, genetic diversity in agriculture, food security, and poverty alleviation efforts. His study examines the interactions between the WTO Agreement on Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights, the Convention of the Union for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants, the Convention on Biological Diversity, the International Undertaking on Plant Genetic Resources, and the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture. He describes how the driving forces behind them channeled their interests and ideas along patterns of influence and he traces these patterns in terms of political-economic structural power, learning and norm diffusion, and institutional capacity at the national and international levels.
