    Regulatory Science, Europeanization, and the Control of Agrochemicals.Elaine McCarthy, Steven Yearley, Alan Irwin & Henry Rothstein - 1999 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 24 (2):241-264.
    This article addresses issues of regulatory convergence and Europeanization as they have developed within the agrochemicals sector. Taking the United Kingdom as a case study, the article considers the continuing importance of local and national factors within systems that are ostensibly international and standardized. In particular, the article shows how the embedded social relations of regulatory science in the United Kingdom, including institutional practices, judgments of expertise, and established relationships of trust, result in a “nation centeredness” and divergence of regulatory (...)

    From One Dependency to Another: The Political Economy of Science Policy in the Irish Republic in the Second Half of the Twentieth Century.Steven Yearley - 1995 - Science, Technology and Human Values 20 (2):171-196.
    The literature on the politics of science and on science policy is dominated by information about large and highly industrialized countries. For example, models of the different forms of science policy administration and management tend to derive from French, U.S., and British exemplars. Yet in the mid-1990s there is a growing number of small nations, all of which are seeking to harness research communities to the cause of socioeconomic development, while still extracting "value for money" from science budgets.
