The second Project grant is led by ANUCES Associate Director Dr Annmarie Elijah, and ANUCES Adjunct Associate Professor Dr Hazel Moir.
Entitled 'Understanding Geographic Indications', its objectives include up-to-date compilation of the empirical evidence of geographical indicators for Australia, New Zealand and the USA; critical assessment of the state of knowledge about those indicators to identify gaps in knowledge for policy-making; and to improve knowledge of geographical indicators for policy making, and trade negotiations.
