Experiments in geoengineering – intentionally manipulating the Earth’s climate to reduce global warming – have become the focus of a vital debate about responsible science and innovation. Drawing on three years of sociological research working with scientists on one of the world’s first major geoengineering projects, this book examines the politics of experimentation. Geoengineering provides a test case for rethinking the responsibilities of scientists and asking how science can take better care of the futures that it helps bring about. This book gives students, researchers and the general reader interested in the place of science in contemporary society a compelling framework for future thinking and discussion.

A growing problem of interest in the field of science and technology policy is that the next generation of innovations is arriving at an accelerating rate, and the governance system is struggling to catch up. Current approaches and institutions for effective technology assessment are ill suited and poorly designed to proactively address the multidimensional, interconnected societal impacts of science and technology advancements that are already taking place and expected to continue over the course of the 21st century. This book offers tangible insights into the strategies deployed by well-known, high-profile organizations involved in anticipating the various societal and policy implications of nanotechnology and synthetic biology. It focuses predominantly on an examination of the practices adopted by the often-cited and uniquely positioned Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies in the United States, as well as being informed by comparisons with a range of institutions also interested in embedding forward-looking perspectives in their respective area of innovation. The book lays out one of the first actionable roadmaps that other interested stakeholders can follow when working toward institutionalizing anticipatory governance practices throughout the policymaking process.

In a period of rapid climate change and climate governance failures, it is crucial to understand and address how effectively different political institutions can and should react to climate change. The term 'institutional response capacity' can be defined as a measurement for how effective political institutions may respond to threats and challenges such as climate change. This book sets out to provide a venue for the discussion of how to conduct climate politics by offering new perspectives on how social and political institutions are capable of responding to climate change. In doing so, the book explores how democracy, institutional design and polycentric governance influence social and political entities’ capacity to mitigate, adapt, address and transform climate change. The book offers building blocks for a new agenda of climate studies by focusing on institutional response capacity and by offering a new approach to climate governance at a time when many political initiatives have failed. This interdisciplinary volume is a valuable resource for academics, researchers and policy-makers in the areas of anthropology, political science, geography and environmental studies.

Öffentlichkeitsbeteiligung ist ein zentrales Thema in der demokratisch verfassten Gesellschaft, insbesondere wenn es um zukunftsweisende Entscheidungen geht wie etwa beim Einsatz neuer Technologien. In der Technikbewertung sind in den vergangenen Jahren verschiedene Verfahren der Öffentlichkeitsbeteiligung entwickelt und erprobt worden. An sie werden nicht nur seitens der Politik hohe Erwartungen hinsichtlich ihrer problemlösenden und sozialintegrativen Funktion gestellt. In dem vorliegenden Band sind diese Verfahren erstmals Gegenstand einer einführenden Übersichtsdarstellung. Dabei wird die Leistungsfähigkeit dieser Verfahren aus demokratietheoretischer Perspektive untersucht. Ferner werden die Möglichkeiten ihrer Anbindung an die politisch-rechtlichen Institutionen der repräsentativen Demokratie diskutiert. Damit spricht der Band alle diejenigen an, die sich in theoretischer und praktischer Hinsicht für das komplexe Verhältnis von Technik, Demokratie und Öffentlichkeit interessieren.
