Abstract:Disruptive technologies have the potential to increase the quality of life but also bring risks in society which governments need to deal with. These technologies go hand in hand with ethical concerns from a large spectrum of actors which might coerce the regulator to prohibit, prohibit with permission, permit or permit with dispensation the disruptive technology in the regulation that is created. This thesis aims to shed light on such a technology by questioning how the bioethical discourse on RFID implants for non-medical purposes shapes relevant regulation. By selecting six different states in the US and comparing them to the EU the bioethical discourse on this new technology can be deduced to unravel how regulation for RFID implants is shaped by bioethics.
