This project argues that the opponents of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) have amplified the socially derived feelings of risk that the public harbors towards GMOs in five European countries including Switzerland, Germany, Spain, Italy and the UK. Through interviews with elite members of GMO opponent organizations and analysis of their publications, we have determined that GMO opponents are amplifying the factors of control and unknown risk. Recommendations were given to aid in the depolarization of the GMO debate.
