TechEthos defines climate engineering as a technology family which enables the modification of natural processes [...] More, neurotechnologies, and digital extended reality (XR) present many significant legal issues that impact socio-economic equality and fundamental rights. In most cases, there is only limited amount of comprehensive or dedicated national laws governing these technology families, though many elements of the technologies are subject to existing national legal frameworks.
This report explores and analyses relevant national laws in nine A case study is a research approach that is used to generate an in-depth [...] More for these three technology families: Climate Engineering in Australia, Austria and the United Kingdom, neurotechnologies in Germany, Ireland and the United States, and XR in France, Italy and the United Kingdom.
You can explore each individual case study or download the full comparative report further below.
Together with TechEthos’ analysis of international and EU law and policy, this analysis will serve as the basis for future work in the TechEthos project involving the development of recommendations for the adjustment or enhancement of legal frameworks at the national and/or international level, as well as policy briefs on the possible need for dedicated legislation at the EU level.
