How much pressure the evolution of agrotechnology experts on the urbanized Flemish agriculture is unclear. Therefore, decoding the structure of the GMO-debate and identifying the criteria linked with the different social vieuwpoints, using a socia-technical scenario analysis, aims to initialize and evaluate decisions made about GMO-technology in Flanders. This even so covers the question of impact for negating this technology.
