Actions and Detail Panel
Policy Forum with Prof. Sheila Jasanoff
Fri. 3 June 2016, 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm AEST
As part of Professor Sheila Jasanoff's visit as a Miegunyah Distinguished Visiting Fellow, she will host a policy forum with officials previously involved in the policy making process here in Australia.
The relationships between scientific research, expert advice and policy making are increasingly understood to be complex and uncertain. This is particularly so where issues, like climate change, are contested socially and politically. This roundtable will explore how the worlds of science and policy communicate - how policy processes may affect the production of science, and how science can influence the production and implementation of policy.
The event will be hosted by the Faculty of Science, in conjunction with Melbourne School of Government, Melbourne Law School and the Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute.
Panelists will include:
Professor Sheila Jasanoff
Professor Helen Sullivan
Professor David Karoly
Moderated by Assoc. Professor Peter Christoff
