This conference, entitled “Science and Values: The Politicisation of Science” will be hosted by the Center for Interdisciplinary Research at Bielefeld University from May 25-29, 2009, and will investigate the complex relationship between scientific research and politics, and the mutual influence they exert on one another.
This conference will bring together the knowledge and reflective competence of three disciplines, including the history, philosophy, and sociology of science. Such analyses of experts from science studies will be further enriched with the experience and understanding of the practitioners, i.e., scientists working under value-related pressure (as it arises from practical challenges and social demands). In addition, representatives of relevant social groups (such as stakeholders) and the media will be included where appropriate.
