RISK, UNCERTAINTY AND EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES IN INDIA

By ESHA SHAH, STEPS Centre member

Our time is marked by a rapid technological change and associated anxieties about public and private risks, a significant part of which remain uncertain and unpredictable and yet could have enormous potential to influence our present and future.

The STEPS Centre is looking into how different institutions and groups frame and respond to risks and uncertainties associated with different areas of rapid scientific and technological change. As part of the project I will be posting regular updates here on The Crossing blog to bring issues related to risk, uncertainty and regulation, with special reference to India, to the fore.
