Podcast: Genetically Modified Crops for Sustainable Agriculture in Germany and Europe?



Genetic modification of crops has long been, and still is, a highly controversial policy issue with some policy groups strictly opposing to it. Others consider the opposition to the use of genetically modified crops as a moral responsibility. As often in such heated debates, political realities and their ethical evaluation are much more nuanced. With our second podcast, we intend to shed light on the genetically modified crops politics in Germany and scrutinize it from the perspective of a Tanzanian political economist: a conversation between Richard Mbunda and Thomas Potthast.
