Abstract:

Gene drive mosquitoes are genomically engineered organisms which are being designed and developed to help tackle malaria in Africa.  In this talk we provide an introduction to our work in this area and our research into ‘co-development’ which is being operationalised as a key and emerging innovation governance framework.  We will present preliminary findings emerging from a sub-set of our research programme which has involved analysing governance discourses in high level international gene drive governance debates and developing a conceptual anatomy of co-development - an emergent innovation governance framework.
