About this product
- DescriptionRights, Regulation, and the Techlogical Revolution confronts a central question facing modern government - how can regulators respond to both the challenges and opportunities presented by a techlogically driven society without sacrificing legitimacy for effectiveness, or weakening the essential conditions of a stable, aspirant moral community? Analysing developments across biotechlogy, information and communications techlogy, natechlogy and neurotechlogy, the book explores the difficulties facing the public control of rapid techlogical change, focusing on the problems of regulatory effectiveness, connection, legitimacy, and compliance. The book argues that as regulators struggle to find adequate frameworks to limit, license and support new techlogies, they will increasingly rely on a techlogical approach to complement, enhance, and even replace traditional legal strategies. The book breaks new ground by offering the first overarching commentary on the relationship between regulators, industry, and wider society as the new techlogies of the twenty-first century achieve an ever-greater penetration in our daily lives.
