Resumen

LENZI, Cristiano Luis. Labeling as precaution: the release of RR soy and the regulation of transgenics in Brazil. Estud.soc.agric. [online]. 2010, vol.5Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1413-0580.

This paper presents an analysis of the conflict involving the release of Roundup Ready (RR) soy in Brazil from what is called a story-line of labeling. The aim is to assess the resources and strategies used by two discursive alliances existing in the conflict to legitimize their position in the political arena in the process of release of transgenics. The work examined statements and arguments that permeated the debate on the issue in the country at different times and used the case involving the release of RR soy as a reference for the analysis. The text aims to show that these discourses have very different assumptions about labeling and its relation to issues involving the principle of substantial equivalence, science, risk and nutritional safety.

Palabras llave : labeling; GMOs; precaution; discourse; conflict.
