Globalisation, Biotechnology and Democracy (London, 5 June, 2007)


Ralph Miliband Programme Global Risks and Politics in the 21st Century lectureGlobalisation, Biotechnology and Democracy Date: Tuesday 5 June 2007 Time: 6.30-8pm Venue: Old Theatre, Old Building Speakers: Professor Hilary Rose, Professor Steven Rose Chair: Professor David Held

Biotechnology, globalisation and democracy are power charged. Biotechnology promoted by giant corporations within neo-liberal globalisation makes possible the manipulation of life itself. Democracy and the governance of science face a new dilemma, as new social movements envision different relations between society, science and nature. This lecture explores an alternative to the current world order.

Hilary Rose is a visiting professor at City University. Steven Rose is a neurobiologist, professor and chair of the Department of Biology, and director of Brain and Behaviour Research Group at the Open University.

This event is free and open to all with no ticket required. Entry is on a first come, first served basis.
