Hindsight and Foresight: Latin America's Response to Ethical and Policy Challenges around Biotechnology

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In the last few decades, biotechnology has made important strides around the globe. Agriculture, health and environment are the locus of incoming emerging technologies. Global regulation has been superficially defined through the two-camp model, where the European versus the American model seem to offer narrow options. Latin America possesses a unique science and technology development profile and a dynamic socio-economic structure. In our paper, we analyze Latin America’s character and position in biotechnology development and adoption. We discuss how the region’s distinctive socio-political conditions have helped develop innovative but sometimes timid responses to ethical and political challenges in the field. We point at future scenarios that may help visualize where Latin America’s biotechnology may be going in the near future and how to incorporate the Latin American experience to forecast and solve challenges in other parts of the world, including Europe and North America.
