Abstract

The introduction of genetically modified products into the human food supply and into other commercial uses is one of the most socially and politically divisive technology issues facing the United States. This article presents a model for confidence building among opposed groups in areas of polarized regulatory conflict generally and details a proposal for confidence building in the genetically modified product arena in particular. The specific proposal entails private industry, activist organizations, and representatives of the public working together on a jointly proposed set of guidelines for improving the quality of genetically modified product regulation.
