Welcome to the Science Diplomacy Center website!
The Science Diplomacy Center has three major areas of focus: Education, Research and Leadership. It aims to: educate the next generation of science diplomats; facilitate research that reveals evidence and options that contribute to informed decisionmaking; and provide leadership with science-diplomacy networks that build common interests across our globally-interconnected civilization.
Science Diplomacy is an international, interdisciplinary and inclusive (holistic) process, facilitating informed decisionmaking to balance national interests and common interests for the benefit of all on Earth across generations.
Through its leadership, education and research activities, the Science Diplomacy Center applies science diplomacy as a holistic informed decisionmaking process to address issues, impacts and resources across as well as beyond sovereign jurisdictions. This involves promoting inclusive dialogues among allies and adversaries alike, integrating time-space evidence across natural and social sciences as well as Indigenous knowledge; and transboundary application of governance mechanisms. The Center draws on expertise from natural and social scientists, negotiation experts, government officials, business leaders and community representatives to produce options (without advocacy) which can be used or ignored explicitly, contributing to informed decisionmaking.
Your interest in the Science Diplomacy Center is most welcome. Thank you for visiting!
