biosecurity; governance of science & technology; institutional perspective; science and society

Document Type



In China's national security affairs, there is a close connection between biosecurity related issues and the development of contemporary science and technology. The design of biosecurity governance system also needs to consider science and technology as a complex variable. This study takes the governance of science and technology around biosecurity issues as a new subject to be focused on in the construction of a national biosecurity governance system. By reviewing the current research on biosecurity issues, the institutional conditions that could promote the integration level of biosecurity governance system and the governance system of science and technology are discussed. Meanwhile, the policy initiatives that could further incorporate scientific research into the biosecurity governance system and the entire national governance system are also explored.
