Despite of the striking data and the alarm raised from international forums and ecological organizations about e-waste, we are facing an ecological and socio-tecnical controversy whom we don’t know many of their components: the current institutional responses are very limited (practically, they come down to apply the Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR)) and the possible everyday and innovative responses from citizenship remain invisible. In this map-timeline, we’ll present the state of the art of documents, news and STS’ literature that deal with this problem. This will let us know who are the involved agents and their relationships, discourses and practices around e-waste.
