Abstract

Not even three decades ago, Geographical Indications (GIs) were a niche subject. Scholarship on the topic was rare, in particular, in the English-speaking world. Then, after the adoption of the TRIPS Agreement, the role of GIs started to become increasingly more prominent at the multilateral level, as well as part of free trade agreements' negotiations and national policies. This translated to a growing body of scholarship that included not only authors from Europe, the continent from which GIs originate, but also from other countries and the global South. In the past ten years, attention to GIs has continued to grow and the legal treatment of GIs has become a fundamental part of policy discussions on economic and social development both nationally and internationally. Today, the field attracts distinguished scholars from every continent and different disciplines. In brief, GIs have become a primary area of Intellectual Property Law.
