The present paper aims at an analysis of the coherence of
the European Union’s policy output in the field of Access
and Benefit-Sharing, in the nexus between the Convention
on Biological Diversity, the World Intellectual Property
Organization and the Agreement on Trade-related Aspects
of Intellectual Property Rights. As some preliminary data
suggests, during 2006, the EU approach to ABS was
fundamentally reorganized. The paper sets out to test
whether such a reorganization can be found at the level of
policy coherence. Statistical analysis suggests, that with
one of two measures for policy coherence, a rupture
around 2006 can be observed.
