Abstract

This article describes the UK experience with public consultation procedures in the field of environmental policy and law. It analyses the different challenges for such procedures, particularly on issues where there seems to be a conflict between scientific information on environmental or health risks and deeply held public values. As a conscious departure from established practices GM Nation tried to engage the public in a new form of debate about the risks and benefits associated with GM agriculture. The article describes how this exercise was conducted, how it actually worked out in practice and also discusses some of the criticisms raised and problems encountered.
