ICLE is a global network of scholars and institutions devoted to methodologies and research agendas supportive of the regulatory underpinnings that enable businesses to flourish. ICLE develops intellectual work in specific policy areas, and builds an international foundation for rigorous policy work in the long run.

The protection of property rights provides the basis for a competitive and innovative market environment in which business and society more generally can thrive. Optimal protection of property rights entails far more than sound intellectual property protection (although it certainly entails that); it also forms the basis for restrained government intervention into business practices, including through antitrust enforcement, consumer protection regulation, trade restrictions, government procurement policies and communications regulations, among many others.
