Regulation of stem cell and regenerative science : stakeholder opinions, plurality and actor space in the Argentine social/science setting
This paper articulates in broad terms a model bioscience environment and its primary constituent parts, which include bioscience policy and regulation, technology deployment and stakeholder engagement, and science innovation systems. Then, having reference to empirical data generated by the GET: Social Values Project, it offers an explanation of how the Argentine environment departs from that ideal model. Finally, focusing on one constituent part of the environment – the policy and regulatory space – it reports on Argentine stakeholder opinions and desires and what these mean for the potential to adopt facilitative regulation in Argentina. It concludes that the Argentine scientific environment is sub-optimal and poorly equipped to deal effectively and positively with the plurality of ideas that people have for both the trajectory of science and its regulation. It ends with a call for further research which broadens the evidence base and thereby facilitates the improvement of the social/science environment and its constituent parts.
