Colglazier and Montgomery mark S&D’s 10th Anniversary by highlighting themes in the special issue and a new “competition and cooperation” era in international science, which calls for strengthening science diplomacy efforts.
If science diplomacy is to be an effective tool for using scientific knowledge to accomplish concrete objectives related to emerging technologies, then the immediate task is to specify clearly the objectives sought and the means for achieving them.
How should we make decisions weighing the risks of rapid change outside of our consensus opinion of the future or outside of our ability to make a consensus decision as a society?
Science & Diplomacy is launching a call for a special issue exploring the intersection between emerging technologies and diplomacy, for publication at the end of the year. New deadline: September 24, 2021.
The guest editors of the special issue, Future-Casting Science Diplomacy reflect on the effects that the COVID-19 pandemic has had in the relationship between science and diplomacy, and on ideas proposed by contributors to this special edition.
I believe that science policy and science diplomacy can play a key part in getting America back on track, but that first requires a candid assessment of what has gone wrong with our science advisory ecosystem and science-policy-society interface.
Catastrophic failures of the science-policy interface in many countries and globally have led to disastrous outcomes for public health, the economy, and international collaboration.
Over the past decade, the use of scientific expertise to advance diplomacy has achieved a number of successes in furthering peace, security, and prosperity. Yet there have also been reversals in important areas that until recently had seen progress.
In honor of the AAAS Center for Science Diplomacy's ten-year anniversary, the editors have compiled a special edition of the journal to reflect on the past, highlight the present, and envision the future of science diplomacy.
