Credibility across cultures: expertise, uncertainty and the global politics of scientific advice, 6-7 February 2013, UK

Speakers include: Professors Anne Glover, Sir Robert Watson, Lidia Brito, David Spiegelhalter, Chris Whitty, Roger Pielke, Duncan Green and more.

Tackling 21st century sustainability and development challenges requires the ‘best available’ scientific advice. But what is ‘best advice’ and how might this idea need to be re-thought?

Many questions persist about how to build and maintain robust, open and accountable processes of expert advice that can operate effectively across disciplines, sectors, social contexts and national boundaries.

Join us for the STEPS Centre Annual Symposium on 6-7 Feb 2013, to debate the critical task of maintaining credibility across cultures.
