Please join us for a dialogue series with Professor Paul Arthur Berkman sponsored by the Science Diplomacy Center and the Russia and Eurasia Program at The Fletcher School. Science diplomacy is an international, interdisciplinary and inclusive process involving evidence integration to balance national interests and common interests for the benefit of all on Earth, across generations. The science diplomacy dialogue series will be held over the following four meetings at The Fletcher School (160 Packard Avenue, Medford MA 02155):
- Globally Interconnected Civilization | Wednesday, September 26 | 12:30-2pm | Cabot 102
- Informed Decision Making for Sustainability | Wednesday, October 10 | 12:30-2pm | Murrow Room, Goddard 210
- The Arctic Case Study | Wednesday, October 17 | 12:30-2pm | Cabot 102
- Capstone Project Enhancement with Holistic Integration | Wednesday, November 14 | 12:30-2pm | Murrow Room, Goddard 210
Learn about the theory and practice of science diplomacy and participate in discussions about how to incorporate both natural and social sciences into foreign policy decision making and international negotiations. In preparation for the discussion series, you are welcome to read a Science paper “The Arctic Science Agreement Propels Science Diplomacy” (2017), as well as a Nature paper “International Spaces Promote Peace” (2009), and to watch an interview with Professor Berkman and former Dean James Stavridis.
Attendance is open to all Tufts University students and is by registration only, here on Eventbrite. Lunch will be provided. Please note that each of the four sessions of the dialogue series will be filmed to be used for the Science Diplomacy course in the future.
