Summary
  • "This book provides novel and thought-provoking insights into the fundamental policy issues involved in agricultural biotechnology. Thomas Bernauer explains global regulatory polarization and trade conflict in this area. He then evaluates cooperative and unilateral policy tools for coping with trade tensions. Arguing that the tools used thus far have been and will continue to be ineffective he concludes that the risk of a full-blown trade conflict is high and may lead to reduced investment and the stagnation or even the decline of the technology. Bernauer concludes with suggestions for policy reforms to halt this trajectory - recommendations that strike a sensible balance between public-safety concerns and private economic freedom - so that food biotechnology is given a fair chance to prove its environmental, health humanitarian, and economic benefits."
  • "This book will equip companies, farmers, regulators, NGOs academics, students, and the interested public - including both advocates and critics of green biotechnology - with a deeper understanding of the political, economic, and societal factors shaping the future of one of the most revolutionary technologies of our times."--BOOK JACKET
