    Abstract

    Examines communicating biosecurity risk through an intersubjective critique of participants knowledge differently situated between governing 'experts' and 'lay' stakeholders in analysis of pest and disease import risk. It explores how technoscientific rationalisations are socioculturally constructed and subsequently opened up to critique. It contributes to understanding our performance of sharing knowledge and responsibility in the ethical-relational dynamics and effects of communicating risk in a contemporary context of agricultural biosecurity.
