Taking back control? Gene editing, science politics, and the legacy of our colonial past
Doerthe Rosenow, pages 84-95

Abstract

But its version of science is one that helps to maintain our profoundly unequal capitalistracist global political economy, and is marked by a desire for mastery and control – a desire that shapes debates in agriculture and genetics, and underpinned the Brexit campaign.
