The Debate on GM-feed in Sweden and Swedish Farmers

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

  1. The debate on GM-feed in Sweden and Swedish farmers
  2. Researchers perceptive on gene technology
