Property Rights Alliance (PRA) announced the release of the 2008 International Property Rights Index (IPRI), which measures 115 countries on the significance of both physical and intellectual property rights and their protection for economic well-being. Forty-one organizations from six continents partnered with Property Rights Alliance in Washington, DC and its Hernando de Soto Fellowship program to disseminate the report. The report's author, Satya Thallam, was PRA's 2007 Hernando de Soto Fellow. The Index focuses on three areas: Legal and Political Environment (LP), Physical Property Rights (PPR), and Intellectual Property Rights (IPR).
The International Property Rights Index seeks to assist underperforming countries to develop robust economies through an emphasis on sound property law, creating social and economic stability and the freedom to trade in goods and ideas. The Index gives researchers, policymakers and the public around the globe a tool for comparative analysis and future research.
