Foresighting futures : law, new technologies, and the challenges of regulating for uncertainty
Existing social and legal systems face significant and multi-faceted challenges, some from the natural world and some from humankind itself. Many of these implicate the law. Indeed, never have we demanded so much from our legal and regulatory frameworks and never have they faced so many pressures and variables.This paper engages with this uncertainty, querying how we might better regulate in the emerging socio-technological setting. It considers the concept and role of ‘foresighting’, exploring the possibilities for foresighting in the legal setting, arguing that ‘legal foresighting’ is imminently justifiable and needs to be expanded, enhanced, and vastly improved, but equally that we must not expect too much of law.
