The lack of trust in politicians and institutions has a significant impact on the ability of governments to propose and implement transformational policies. Is science and evidence part of the solution or part of the problem? How should governments access science advice to deliver the best level of confidence in its impartiality?

Together with Richard von Weizsäcker Fellow Anne Glover and with Jürgen Trittin, Member of the Committee on Foreign Affairs in the German Parliament, we would like to spend an interactive evening taking genetic engineering as an example to discuss the role of scientific knowledge in political decision making processes and how its involvement might strengthen transparency and confidence of the electorate in politics.

This event will take place in English.
