Contentious politics, contentious knowledges: Mobilising against GM crops in India, South Africa and Brazil
Referring to experiences of anti-GM activism in India, South Africa and Brazil, this paper explores how knowledge and politics are intertwined in mobilisation processes. The case studies highlight activist mobilisation, and how knowledge and perspectives on science, technology and policy are often ignored. The paper focuses on the need for a great political value of science and technology, with a move beyond standard processes for deliberation and negotiation about science and technology policy.
