The Canadian Journal of Development Studies

In 2016 the Canadian Journal of Development Studies published a special section that asked: Can genetically modified (GM) crops help the poor? This section was born out of conversations held between 30 experts at the 2015 GMOs and Poverty Conference at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. In this section, three contributors: Dr. Matthew Schnurr (Associate Professor at Dalhousie University and conference organizer), Dr. Brian Dowd-Uribe (Assistant Professor at the University of San Francisco), and Dr. Melinda Smale (Professor at Michigan State University) offer a balanced view that aims to interrogate our understanding of GM technology, poverty, and current evidence before us.

All three articles are available, open access through the Canadian Journal of Development Studies.
