Nanotechnology and the emergence of a new form of international governance - Part 2

The development of nanotechnologies is transnational, transtechnological and high-potential high-risk because of its international dimension. However, nanoparticles are so small that it is very difficult to trace them and check how they react with the environment. These characteristics have direct consequences on governance and policy making because regulations must be generic enough to accomodate the transnational nature of nanotechnologies and send clear signals to nanoentreprenors to balance the risks and the potential return of the nanotechnologies, especially in their relation with consumers and the insurance sector.
