open in viewer

We investigated the progression and status of the social movement against genetically engineered agriculture in Vermont. Stakeholder mobilization theory and social movement theory contributed to our understanding of the key players (government, biotech corporations and anti-genetically engineering activist groups) in this movement. We found that establishing a cooperative agenda among the activist groups to promote legislation - which would make corporations liable for unwanted contamination - would be important in protecting the natural and organic agriculture in Vermont.
