Decision makers need to be informed by cutting edge scientists about the implications of scientific developments, and scientists face difficult dilemmas in relation to both the social implications of their science and their public responsibility. The topics of discussion include nuclear policy, knowledge production and the conceptualization of science in society.

The session is Chaired by Mohammed Hassan and Co-chaired by Aftab Ahmad.
