Abstract

This article frames a collection of writings comprising a special issue of the NanoEthics journal. The pieces are related through three themes: (i) the relationship between technoscientific developments and consensus making and breaking; (ii) the notion of technological regulation as an activity intimately entangled with the regulation of relations among a wide host of actors and stakeholders; and (iii) law’s omnipresence in and importance to effective regulation. The seven articles of the special issue are briefly contextualized against this thematic field.
