Norrie, Kenneth (1988) Genetic knowledge and the law. In: Truth and the Child. Family Care, Edinburgh, Edinburgh. ISBN 0950811750Full text not available in this repository.
The need to regulate access to genetic resources and ensure a fair and equitable sharing of any resulting benefits was at the core of the development of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). The CBD established a series of principles and requirements around access and benefit sharing (ABS) in order to increase transparency and equity in the international flow of genetic resources, yet few countries have been able to effectively implement them and ABS negotiations are often paralysed by differing interests. This chapter examines genetic knowledge and the law.
