Long Abstract:

Disruptive technologies, major accidents, and crises such as the pandemic strongly impact societies. To prepare for such events, STS scholars have put forward the concept of Anticipatory Governance as a practical and critical way of looking into possible futures. The concept is used to build capacity incrementally and to evaluate narratives that shape emerging governance pathways. It shares similarities to concepts like Responsible Research and Innovation and reflexive governance.

This session aims at bringing together the many usages of Anticipatory Governance as a normative concept, an analytical framework, and an actual practice.

Examples for topics are

- Anticipatory Governance applied to emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, geoengineering, or biotechnologies

- Developing the concept of Anticipatory Governance further in comparison to Responsible Research and Innovation, Technology Assessment, reflexive governance and other similar concepts

- Modes of implementation into research, regulation, and public discourses
