New technologies and the science that created them have transformedour lives, posing challenges as to how technological change can bebetter integrated into society. Over the last few decades, recognitionof these issues has led to different ways of engaging the public in theassessment and regulation of emerging technologies. However, diversefactors such as existing regulatory frameworks specific tojurisdictions, local cultural contexts, and the nature of particulartechnologies have ensured that there is no single approach. This book puts the subject of publics and their engagement withemerging technologies on a robust footing. With a strong, though notexclusive, focus on genomic technologies, leading theorists andpractitioners in the field provide overviews of methods and approachesand theoretical accounts of the processes underlying public engagement.They also offer precise and clear insights into the key issues ofpublic participation studies, including ethics, process, and principlesof knowledge distribution in democratic societies. The discussion isparticularly pertinent and central to current concerns in health, technology, and public participation at a time when the reform ofpublic and private sector health and social care services are beingdebated globally.
