Abstract:     
Whereas we prefer to think of 'law', 'politics' and 'science' as autonomous fields, in the area of the regulation of genetically modified (GM) foods, the demarcation between these spheres is blurry. To be sure, difference and discord within the EU , and between the EU and the US, provide an important contexts against which the EU’s regulatory regime governing GM technology in general, and this specific case in particular, should be appreciated. As an introduction to this case, a number of related issues merit specific attention.
