The call for increased public involvement in the formulation of science and technology policy has resulted in a number of consultation initiatives. One such initiative is the consensus conference, which involves lay people in the assessment of socially sensitive topics. This book draws together, for the first time, the pioneering experiences of the Danish, Dutch and British organisers of consensus conferences. The conference are placed in historical and cultural perspective, and their roles in technology assessment are explored. The perspectives contained in this volume will smooth the way for future consultations of this type
