The Doll, the Globe and the  Boomerang: Chemical Risks  in the Future : Introduced by a  Chinese Doll Coming to Sweden

Abstract [en]

This research report concerns the role of chemical risk information in attempts to 'detoxify' global product chains. Under what conditions can such information make a difference and how can we combine interdisciplinarities in order to study this hitherto dark terrain?  Seven 'images' are painted in order to discuss these questions. The introductory image pictures a doll made in Southern China who ends up at a day care centre in Malmoe, Sweden. To describe the methodological problems which arise when studying this 'doll chain' I use the image of going into the dark. A set of three images describe much discussed futures for the 'detox' efforts, futures which might lead the Swedish public at large to complacency or despair. My dramatising names for the three futures are: "REACHing a less contaminated EU", "Race to the bottom", and "Submission".   My main aim is, however, to paint an image of global 'detoxification from below' and an image of 'interdisciplinarities in dialogue' in order to study the Herculean task of detoxification of global product chains. Those two images are simultaneously elaborated in chapter II and then summarised in chapter III.   My hope is that I – through this report – will help make global detoxification from below 'possible to imagine'. At the methodological level, I argue for concepts and proto-concepts such as 'interdisciplinarity', 'boundary spanning', 'multiple partisanships' and 'transformative pressure'.   I allow myself a completely unrealistic end (section III.4), in order not to be overwhelmed by the seriousness of the problems discussed in the rest of the report.  The report is my main contribution to the research project INFLOW which i.a. has studied the flow of chemical risk information in global product chains.
