Abstract or Description

This paper analyses market based initiatives as solutions to techno-scientific problems. It focuses on electronic waste to argue that market- based initiatives are key locations in which techno-scientific work takes place. Such work is explored through recent ideas inspired by Actor-Network Theory and the concept of performativity.
