Last changed: 20 September 2021

Few subjects have been so debated as genetically modified organisms (GMO). Who has participated in this public discourse? And which arguments have dominated over time? This is what we wanted to find out, and we also wanted to know what impact the discourse have had on the legislation.

This was one of two research project, where we studied the public discourse on biotechnology:

  1. The debate on GM-feed in Sweden, and Swedish farmers
    Read about the project: The debate on GM-feed in Sweden, and Swedish farmers
  2. Researchers perceptive on gene technology.

The projects were initiated January 2017 and went on until March 2020.

The projects were part of the large multidiciplinary research programme Mistra Biotech. You can read more about Mistra Biotech here: www.slu.se/en/Collaborative-Centres-and-Projects/mistra-biotech/
