Regulating Bioscience: Between the ivory tower and the policy room

October 6, 2014 @ 12:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Advances in science and technology are closely entangled with the making and deployment of law and legal processes in society. Law is often looked at as a way to control and shape science, while others see regulation as a means of stimulating innovation. Legal decision-making is at times described as being increasingly dependent on expertise, while others draw attention to the interdependency between governance and the production of knowledge.

The AHRC Technoscience, Law and Society Research Network aims to bring together scholars and practitioners seeking to explore these and other aspects of the relationship between law, technoscience and society. In this fourth workshop, we seek to discuss more specifically the role of think- tanks and non-departmental public bodies in governing the development and use of technoscience.
