Abstract

Article analyzes a number of transnational governance challenges and opportunities nanotechnology development will likely pose for the United States and China to highlight some of issues that need to be resolved by these two governments so that an appropriate management strategy for nanotechnology research and development can be developed. These issues include: the prioritization of nanotechnology research and development, the need for internationally coordinated risk research strategies, the need for effective oversight mechanisms, the current rapid commercialization of consumer products containing engineered nanoparticles, and the current low levels of public awareness and trust in government.
