The access to knowledge (A2K) movement emerged from these debates, and as noted in the previous chapter, Egypt is one of the key developing countries which have contributed to its formation.

Egypt’s role, in this regard, reflects its wider role in the setting of the international agenda on many global issues as well as its engagement in favor of a more development-oriented global trade and intellectual property (IP) architecture. This chapter aims to examine Egypt’s role in a number of international fora and processes, which have played a significant role in the development of the A2K movement. The chapter proceeds in four parts. The first section will look at the global knowledge architecture as it impacts developing countries, providing a background to the emergence of the A2K movement and an overview of the most salient developments in this regard.
