The Unspeakable Ban: The Translation of Global Pesticide Governance into Honduran National Regulation
AbstractSummary This study examines the transfer of regulatory models from the international to the national level, drawing on a case study of Honduras and its adoption of the International Code of Conduct on the Distribution and Use of Pesticides. A key question concerns why the banning of hazardous pesticides disappears from the national policy agenda in the transfer process. The paper argues that development interventions reinforce a way of framing pesticide risks which prioritizes the scientific assessment of pesticides as a product rather than examining the everyday context in which they are used.
