Abstract

This article examines the relationship between the development of nanotechnology and the emerging movement for social justice to understand the gap between the potential of science and technology to do good and the actual ways in which science and technology get developed, as well as how this gap could be closed so nanotechnology would be better able to contribute to global justice.
