Norms and Systems of Governance for Synthetic Biology

In a world where you can grow anything, what are the norms and systems of governance that should exist around the production of substances that can have harmful effects?

The team’s first objective will be to assemble a historical review of how thinkers and actors have categorized the wide range of potentially addictive, tolerance-building, and/or dependence-building substances. Then, the team will look at which of these categorization schemes have been adopted by governments and other stakeholder groups for the purposes of designing controlled substances regimes.
