Science Diplomacy & International Policy
On 11th-12th May 2016, The Academy of Diplomacy and International Governance, together with the Canadian Science Policy Centre and the London Diplomatic Science Club hosted Science Diplomacy and International Policy, the 19th International Symposium in the series of Diplomacy in the 21st Century.
Members of the London Diplomatic corps, including Ambassadors, High Commissioners, and Science and Technology Attaches, as well as government dignitaries, representatives of NGOs, think tanks and policy centres, Deans and Directors of Diplomatic Academies, scholars, university staff and students converged at the Loughborough London campus at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park around a forum to discuss pressing issues pertaining to science diplomacy and international policy. The Symposium provided a highly successful platform for productive exchange and discussion among the panellists and guests. The diversity and depth of the themes and approaches covered made for a very informative and fruitful engagement.
