During 2011 I had the opportunity to act as a guest editor for a special issue in Journal of Community Genetics. My two co-editors for this special issue were Maria Hedlund (Department of Political Science, Lund University) and Ulf Kristoffersson (Department of Clinical Genetics, University and Regional Laboratories, Region Skane, Lund, and Lund University).
The special issue features a number of articles from renowned researchers on the theme of Genetics and Democracy. All contributors to the special issue have also been participants in a series of seminars organized during 2008-2011 (from 2010 in collaboration with LETStudios, University of Gothenburg) by the Genetics and Democracy research network at Lund University.
More information on the special issue can be found in our editorial:
