09: Genome editing: governing on the cusp of uncertainty

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Global power
english language

Our inventions change the world and the reinvented world then changes us. Behind conflict and cooperation lies the question of risk responsibility. Whose duty is it in today’s complex societies to foresee the potentially negative impacts of disruptive technologies such as gene-editing? Do we possess the necessary tools and instruments for forecasting and preventing harm?
