Abstract

This paper focuses on the analysis of the EU regulatory strategies in the field of synthetic biology, examining how they have introduced and mixed different forms of normativity. The new regulatory landscape raises questions related to the so called “ethicisation of technoscience”, where soft law is increasingly framed through a language of ethics and morality. In light of this, the contribution looks at the implications this phenomenon could have for democratic principles within the process of rethinking European governance.
