Society Religion and Technology

Technology is changing the face of our society, yet ethical challenges like cloning and genetically modified food have made us aware of the risks of letting our skills run ahead of our judgement.

The Society, Religion and Technology Project (SRTP) was set up by the Church of Scotland almost 50 years ago to examine the ethical and social implications of new technology.
