Based on analyzing two different areas of research about regulation of technologies, which are the literature of innovation and regulation on the one hand, and risk and governance on the other hand; the present study suggests that there are some conceptual gaps in the policy literature. Using the case of GM foods regulation in the context of European Union, it will show some limitations of both streams. As a initial proposed framework for policy analysis as well as policy making, it shall suggest a new conceptual model that is supposed to be richer than the previous versions.
