Abstract

This article examines coexistence between GM, organic and conventional farming in the EU. The approach to coexistence is a major part of the post-authorisation regulatory framework for GMOs, and the allocation of authority for this aspect of regulation is heavily disputed between the Commission and certain Member States. Where authority lies is far from transparent, but the Commission's efforts seem to be directed at limiting national restrictions on the cultivation of GMOs. The article argues, in particular, that the conceptualisation of coexistence as a purely economic issue by the Commission is significantly restrictive of national autonomy, and involves a mistakenly narrow view of what is at stake in the regulation of GMOs.
