With this document, which has a strong multidisciplinary character, devoted in particular to GMOs, we are trying to find answers to the following questions:
1) Can GMOs provide an effective and lasting solution to the problems of access to food in the world? Or, on the contrary, do they risk increasing inequality?
2) Can GMOs contribute to solving problems of environmental sustainability and the scarcity of natural resources? Or, on the contrary, are they a threat to biodiversity?
3) Are there risks connected with eating the genetically modified food now on the market?
4) What information do people have about biotechnologies and GMOs? And how is the subject handled by the media?
In this study we have attempted to integrate the different perspectives to arrive at a synthetic but detailed opinion, based on the representation of the different positions compared and on the facts that compose them.
