Description of this Book

This volume represents the proceedings of an international conference organized by the Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology, and Society (TILT) in Tilburg, the Netherlands. The book brings together a wide range of international scholars from a variety of disciplines to shed light on the multiple dimensions of technology regulation. It presents different perspectives in an innovative way, visualizing the emerging discipline of technology regulation as a multidimensional space. The book explores a range of issues in the fields of nano-materials and nano-medicine, biotechnology, chemicals, and ICT, as well as overarching topics, such as innovation regimes, risk governance, and responsive regulation. By grouping the analyses along four dimensions - type of technology, type of regulation, innovation, and time - it allows both scholars and practitioners to explore the space of technology regulation along new lines and to identify new possibilities for regulatory action and future research. Technological developments pose enormous challenges for regulators. Not only do regulators need to find an optimal balance between protecting fundamental values and public goods and the stimulation of creativity and innovation, but they need to do so in a way that keeps pace with the speed and pervasive nature of technological developments. Technology regulation is thus emerging as an important field of interdisciplinary research. The book charts the multifarious challenges of new technologies and possible regulatory responses from a multidisciplinary perspective.
