The role of NGOs in governing nanotechnologies: challenging the ‘benefits versus risks’ framing of nanotech innovatio

Around the world, community groups have worked for years to draw attention to nanotechnology’s health, environment, social and democratic challenges. Have our submissions and reports, consumer guides and industry surveys, blogs and opinion pieces, street theatre and protest actually influenced how this powerful new technology is governed or the direction of its development? In a new book chapter, we evaluate the effectiveness of our involvement in nanotechnology debates.
