Institute of Hazard, Risk and Resilience
Internationally-recognised leaders in developing resilient, research-informed approaches to hazard and risk
We are a world-leading research institute in hazard, risk and resilience based at Durham University. We support innovative research and training for use in policy and practice, collaborating directly with communities, Non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and governments.
Our commitment is to work with and learn from the widest possible range of stakeholders living with hazard and risk – empowering people, fostering resilience, and improving lives, both now and in the future. Our success stems from our capacity to approach complex problems holistically, drawing together a transdisciplinary team of experts from across the physical sciences, the social sciences and the humanities.
Launch of GMFuturos Working Paper
(16 June 2014)
A new approach to governing GM crops? Global lessons from the rising powers
The Working Paper from the the GMFuturos project covers research on perceptions of GM crops in Brazil, India and Mexico. It was presented at the Royal Society 13 June 2014. A policy brief from the project is also available that summarises key findings.
The long-term vision of GMFuturos is to develop a model of social science that engages with and contributes to policy and scientific debates on GM crop technology assessment and appraisal.
