Policy landscapes are instruments that identify national regulations on human genome editing (HGE). After examining their ethical and political assumptions, we highlight their limitations and effects for Latin America. We suggest creating other landscapes, such as focusing on processes and drawing attention to potential ‘circuits of use’ within and across borders.
