Public Participation in Science: The Role of Consensus Conferences in Europe
The call for increased public involvement in the formulation of science and technology policy has resulted in the consensus conference: an initiative which involves lay people in the assessment of socially sensitive topics. This book draws together the pioneering experiences of the Danish, Dutch and British organisers of consensus conferences, as well as offering a scheme, developed at a multinational two-day workshop in 1995 in London, for producing comparable data for the evaluation of consensus conferences.
