New Global Frontiers in Regulation

The Age of Nanotechnology

Monash Studies in Global Movements series

Edited by Graeme A. Hodge, Diana M. Bowman and Karinne Ludlow

This important volume is a timely contribution to increasing international calls to regulate nanotechnologies. By investigating the ways in which we could regulate these advances, and what we are learning from regulating existing technologies, such as biotechnologies and information technologies, the book debates the roles of government, business actors and the professions in protecting and enhancing the lives of citizens. In placing particular emphasis on the lessons of earlier technology advances, this book is unique in its broad consideration of the ethical, legal and social issues entwined within the development of the nanotechnology family.
