At this conference we asked:

  • What is ‘science diplomacy’?
  •  In addition to nuclear power, environmental security and food security, what are the key issues that need to be addressed?
  • What tools are needed for effective science diplomacy?
  •  How to build this capacity?
  •  How can science diplomacy help build international links and, in particular, foster positive re-engagement with the Islamic World?
  • How to balance tensions between scientific independence and the needs of the state?
