Abstract:     
This article arose as an invited chapter for a book that represents a global collaborative effort to explore the methodologies of socio-economic considerations as part of developing regulatory frameworks for agricultural biotechnology, which will be a component of the deliberations in upcoming international conferences and national policymaking. Food safety concerns are heightened in the area of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), where scientific uncertainty compounds the issues in determining and evaluating the risks of harm to human health and the environment. This chapter explores key questions for policymakers, proposing a unified multilateral approach that engages governmental units, international organizations, and a broad array of stakeholders.
