U.N. Report Finds Crimes Against Humanity in North Korea

On Tuesday February 18 the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay, asked world powers to refer the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) to the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Sneak Preview: The Limits of Regulatory Science in the Governance of Trangenic Plant Agriculture and Food Systems

The current national and transnational regulatory and policy framework for transgenic plant agriculture and food is arguably largely defined by science. Notably, transgenic plant agriculture policy deference to science is ostensibly premised on the general perception that science is neutral, objective, reliable, and agnostic. This is exemplified by cases that range from Alliance for Bio-integrity v Donna Shalala, European Communities: Measures Affecting the Approval and Marketing of Biotech Products, to European Commission v Republic of Poland, in which conscientious, ethical, religious, and cultural oppositional grounds to transgenic plant agriculture and food were trumped by scientific imperatives. However, the lack of unanimity of views amongst scientists on...
