This book analyzes the beginning stages of the development of nanoscience andnanotechnology in Latin American countries. Within are chapters about Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, the Andes region and Uruguay. Using this regional understanding of development as a foundation, it is possible to reflect on the political, economic, social, legal, ethical and environmental impacts of these emerging technologies within Latin America. Nanotechnology in Latin America also shows the implementation of different science and technology policies throughout the region.

Nanotechnology has reopened the discussion about the role of technology to alleviate poverty and to promote development. In this book, different nanotechnologies are analyzed in the social context from which they are emerging. Factors like industrial production oriented toward profit, intellectual property rights, the amount of innovation in developing countries and social inequities are seen as key challenges that must be addressed if anotechnology is to assume its potential role as a means to aid development and to alleviate poverty.
