The UK government has committed itself to deregulating genetically engineered organisms created using new ‘gene editing’ technologies. But how well do its proposals align with those elsewhere in the world?
A new public dialogue on gene edited farm animals, by the Nuffield Council on Bioethics, BBSRC and Sciencewise, challenges the notion that members of the public are incapable of contributing to complex policy and regulatory discussions
Regulating Gene Editing A Case for Public Engagement
Where and how does citizen engagement fit into concepts of good governance of agricultural genetic technologies? In the UK, the EU and elsewhere, citizen involvement remains peripheral and elusive.
This timely and important discussion, part of our webinar series, aims to explore the question of where citizen engagement fits into concepts of good governance and ask, if it is essential then how do we implement it? Join our panel of expert speakers have first-hand knowledge of the possibilities and challenges of incorporating public perspectives into the regulation of agricultural genetic engineering.
