> Dear all,
> I am a graduate student working on a paper concerning ICTs in Greece in
> terms of policy formation and science-technology governance.
> I am aware that studies on environmental movements and/or biotechnology
> have been concerned with issues such as framing expertise and publics,
> forms of participation, the agenda setting role of economic policy,
> delimitation of publics, etc.
> The difference, as I understand it, between ICTs and environmental and/or
> biotechnological issues has been mainly that the latter have usually been
> debated in terms of the risk that they potentially encompass, while ICTs
> are usually been discussed in terms of the 'progress' they promise.
> Does anyone happen to know any studies on ICTs (preferably of the EU
> context) that discuss such issues?
