For GM crops in Europe, this project will analyse how current practices -regulatory measures, expert judgements and stakeholder roles - compare to different accounts of the precautionary principle. These practices will be studied at EU level and in 7 member states. Users of the research will be involved through an advisory panel and scenario-analysis workshops. The project will build upon and integrate earlier studies of public attitudes, risk regulation, precaution and deliberation. Using the analytical results, the project will suggest how official guidelines and expert bodies could be made more appropriate for addressing the policy problems, which the EU faces.
