FOLADORI, Guillermo. Risks to Health and the Environment from Nanotechnology Policies in Latin America. Sociológica (Méx.) [online]. 2012, vol.27, n.77, pp.143-180. ISSN 2007-8358.

Nanotechnologies grew and expanded in Latin America during the first decade of the twenty-first century. This article shows the role that science and technology policies fostered by institutions like the World Bank and the Organization of American States have played in promoting certain objectives, but also the risk of not accompanying those objectives with basic criteria for implementation. Since potential health and environmental risks or other labor effects were not included, aspects that are important for both workers and consumers have been omitted from these policies, opening a gap between them and those proposed by organized civil society.

Palavras-chave : nanotechnology; science and technology policies; research and development; Latin America; science and technology.
