PROJECT PARTNERS

 

RESEARCH GROUP ON LAW SCIENCE TECHNOLOGY & SOCIETY (LSTS, created in 2003) at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) is devoted to analytical, theoretical and prospective research into the relationships between law, science, technology and society. LSTS’s core expertise is legal, but it also has a strong track record in legal theory, philosophy of sciences and bio-ethics, and it engages in criminological (surveillance & security) and STS-research too. In broad terms: LSTS’s main challenge is to (re)think the constitutive principles of democracy and the rule of law (including principles as precaution, participation, accountability and responsibility) in relation to contemporary scientific and technological developments that seem to confront citizens with irreversible decision-making processes with a major impact on their lives.
