Emerging technologies create challenges for traditional regulatory approaches. The contributors to this book – leading scholars in law, innovation, and technology – address the need for new governance methods and models.

The unique characteristics of emerging technologies – their diverse applications, the myriad concerns raised by new technologies, the need for public engagement, and the issue of effective coordination between governance players – create the need for new governance approaches. The authors identify innovative new methods of governance, taking into account an environment where changes in technologies can out-pace the corresponding regulatory frameworks.

Scholars of technology, science and innovation will find this book to be an enlightening read, as will lawyers, policymakers and think-tanks working within the emerging technologies arena.
