Invited RS talk on public engagement

I was invited by the Royal Society’s Science Policy section to give a presentation at the UK-China policy dialogue on genetic technologies on 27 March 2018. In her talk, ‘Opening Up the ‘Black Boxof the Life Sciences’, I argued that while scientific research and its impacts are becoming increasingly transnational, public engagement is still conceptualised within a nation-state framework. This has significantly constrained the capacity of risk communication in global research. Thus we need to co-develop public engagement in and with emerging countries so as to make genetic technologies more accountable to an increasingly cosmopolitan publics.
