Editing Nature: Governance Hurdles and Ethical Holes in Genetic Engineering
 
Professor Kofler will outline how scientific and value-based knowledge can inform technology decision making in ways that are both context-dependent and global in scope. The inadequacy of dominant theories in environmental ethics to support such decision-making will also be presented and an alternative ethos proposed: one that respects the interconnectedness of human and environmental health and invites technology into that relationship to augment the flourishing of both.
