ABSTRACT
The article examines how the different coexistence policies among the European Union (EU) Member States affect the adoption of genetically modified (GM) crops. Trade-offs for different regulatory systems within the EU are analyzed. The model being used combines ex ante regulatory and ex post liability costs including irreversibility and uncertainty. Researchers found that the adoption dynamics of GM crops within the EU are likely to be very different across and within EU Member States. One element causing variability is the heterogeneity of farms, farm practices and landscape structure.
