Abstract

Whilst public engagement in decisions concerning science and
technology is widely extolled, research shows that the application of deliberative democratic theory remains  at least in Europe  highly constrained. Science and
technology policy requires closer attention to the wider context of governance and
the compatibility of public deliberation with established modes of policy-making.
