BEYOND BIOSAFETY

In developing countries, debates around transgenic crops have tended to focus on biosafety and its regulation at the risk of ignoring broader ethical concerns. A new project by the STEPS Centre, is exploring how to open-up these debates among civil society actors.

The Institute of Development Studies has featured an article by Sally Brooks, convenor of the Beyond Biosafety project, talking a little bit about the project and the issues it hopes to address.
