Prevention of harm in mobile telecommunication

December 1, 2022 @ 12:30 am - 1:30 pm

Organised by the FDEF House for Sustainable Governance and Markets in collaboration with the Belgio-Luxembourg Hub of the European Law Institute (ELI), the Association Luxembourgeoise pour le droit de l’environment (ALDE) and EU Law Live (as media partner).


Dr. David Gee, Former Senior Science Adviser European Environmental Agency, Visiting Fellow, Centre for Pollution Research and Policy, Brunel University, London


The histories of some 35 hazardous agents (chemical, technological and in ecosystems) that have been reviewed and analysed by the European Environment Agency in its two volumes of “Late Lessons from Early Warnings: the Precautionary Principle 1896-2000” (EEA 2001) and “Late Lessons from early warnings: Science; Precaution, Innovation” (EEA 2013) revealed 4 common arguments used to delay timely preventive actions. These 4 concern the consistency/inconsistency of research results; the effects/adverse effects dichotomy; the strength of evidence for causality; and the safety of current exposure limits for workers, children and the public. These 4 issues will be critically examined via a focus on the current debate in Germany and elsewhere in Europe, Australia, and the USA etc. concerning the safety of electromagnetic radiations from mobile telecommunications as used in 3-5G systems.
