Jack Kloppenburg

Jack Kloppenburg focuses on social studies of science and technology and on environmental sociology. He explores the means by which those who “own” biological diversity in developing countries can claim ownership and maintain genetic “property rights” and systems of reward for the production, reproduction and maintenance of biological diversity. He specifically focuses on the problems of establishing rights to genetic information on behalf of peasant communities and indigenous peoples. In addition, he is undertaking a study to address the distinctions between “local/indigenous” and “scientific” knowledge production.
