Abstract

This article compares the risk policies of GMO and issues on genetic medicine in Taiwan and the Republic of Korea as the thesis of developmental state. Through an analysis of strategic investment, R&D construction and incentives for biotech and biomedicine, we discuss the fact that the role of developmental states has never faded in the fields of economics and technology. On the contrary, both the developmental states and their societies have simultaneously encountered transformative challenges of governance capacity and social trust since the beginning of 2000. In the case of GMO in Taiwan in early 2000, technocrats ignored and concealed technological risks involving serious scientific, ethical and social disputes, even delaying risk governance. And society weakened its scrutinizing capacity. (The rest omitted)
