Political Civility and Scientific Objectivity Conference at UC San Diego, March 1-3

The Institute for International, Comparative, and Area Studies (IICAS) Presents:

Political Civility and Scientific Objectivity:
Science, Technology and Public Policy in Democratic Societies

March 1-3, 2012
Deutz Conference Room, at the Institute of the Americas (IOA)
UC San Diego

Register at:

How should democratic societies use, and how have they used, scientific and technical expertise to guide their affairs? What institutions, ideologies, procedures, standards, and expertise have (or should have) been applied in inferring factual decisions in public affairs? This set of interdisciplinary and interconnected questions is fast becoming centre-stage in the humanities and social sciences, and this conference will bring together leading researchers from all corners of the academy to explore the potential for interdisciplinary cooperation in studying them.
