Final Report of the PAGANINI project is a summary
of the theoretical framework and an elaboration of
the key findings of the PAGANINI project. It is based
on the Final Reports of Work Package 1 – 6.
It engages in discussions on how the relations between
society, technology and nature are redefined and given
shape in view of very concrete policy issues in the
fields of stem cell research, genetic testing, food
scandals, genetically modified food and nature conservation,
fields that the PAGANINI project relates to as ‘politics
of life’. In this area, traditional practices
of governance are unlikely to present a viable object.
The Final Report sets out to discuss which new modes
of governance emerged in this field, focusing in particular
on the space of participatory practices.
