About this lecture: Following many years of argument, it is now generally accepted by decision makers that the ethical aspects of a new technology may be a legitimate element of risk regulation.  However, it has proven difficult to integrate ethical concerns into regulatory decision making. Providing decision makers with access to ethical expertise, alongside expertise in other disciplines such as economics, risk assessment or law, is one response to this dilemma.  But expertise in ethics has a controversial place in the regulatory process. The EU regulation of nanotechnology provides  a case study through which to explore the role of ethical debate in risk regulation.


About UCL Ethics & Law: The Centre for Ethics and Law has been established to reflect the growing need for enhanced collaboration between academics, practising lawyers and industry, given the fast changing and increasingly interdisciplinary nature of the global issues lying at the intersection between law and ethics. The work of the Centre is resolutely multi-disciplinary and practice-oriented, focusing on three broad themes: professional ethics, ethics of risk and distributive justice.  For more information about the Centre, please visit www.ucl.ac.uk/laws/law-ethics
