Research output: Book/ReportReportAcademic


Glyphosate is the world’s most widely used herbicides and the debates surrounding potential risks associated with it have dominated its recent re-approval in 2017 and will continue to play a role in the ongoing renewal procedure which was applied for in December 2019.
Paying attention to the risk assessment and risk management phase at EU level as well as the position of various stakeholders, this case study will analyse the role that the precautionary principle played in the EU procedures for the re-approval of glyphosate. It will also discuss how the application of the precautionary principle in this case interacts with innovation and especially the ‘innovation principle’ which is recently gaining traction in the EU discourse
