Abstract

Based on existing research on Spain and Greece, the essay is focused upon the activity of experts in criminal courts and advisory committees. Following the experts in these settings, we offer examples of their roles in governing techno-sciences in societies of the European periphery. We highlight the tensions between the creative powers of localities and the movement of expert knowledge in a world marked by striking inequalities concerning economic, political and academic power. We claim that a comparative study of these movements will be refine the historical understanding of experts and expertise.
