Critical Acclaim
'This extremely comprehensive work by one of the world’s foremost scholars on geographical indications of origin is of enormous value to practitioners and scholars alike. The topic of GIs is complex and multifaceted, but Professor Blakeney can draw on his unique combination of profound understanding of policy issues and comprehensive knowledge of critical cases and developments in this field. The result is a substantial, well-informed and readable volume for which interested readers trying to stay up to speed with this difficult topic will remain very grateful.'
– William van Caenegem, Bond University, Australia

‘Geographical indications are central to the EU’s regional development and trade agendas. Professor Blakeney cuts through the complexity of European laws on GIs with rigour and clarity. This is a must-read book for those wanting to understand Europe on GIs.’
– Peter Drahos, European University Institute, Italy
