How can science improve our relationships
Science diplomacy is diverse. When official channels are restricted, science can help restore trust and build credibility. At the same time, science diplomacy helps to deepen existing partnerships and improve mutual understanding in international relations. It enables a constructive dialogue across national and cultural borders because it relies on the universal language of science and is based on the values and standards of science. Science diplomacy also supports scientists around the world who are exposed to oppression and human rights violations. Another dimension is to use scientific expertise to overcome global challenges and acute crises.
The Leopoldina is active in science diplomacy in various ways:
Human Rights Committee of the Leopoldina
The Human Rights Committee (HRC) of the Leopoldina supports scientists around the world who are exposed to reprisals for their scientific work. The Leopoldina is a member of the International Human Rights Network of Academies and Scholarly Societies (H.R. Network).
Western Balkans Process / Berlin Process
The Leopoldina has been coordinating the Joint Science Conference of the Western Balkans Process / Berlin Process since 2014. This platform brings together national representatives of the education and science systems from 14 countries. It gives recommendations to the heads of state and government for the improvement of education and science systems in connection with the accession of the Balkan countries to the EU and enables stronger regional cooperation in south-eastern Europe.
International advisory bodies
Prof. Dr. Jörg Hacker, President of the National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina from March 1, 2010 to February 29, 2020, represents the Federal Government in the European Science Advisers Forum (ESAF), the forum of the chief scientific advisers of the EU member states. In addition, as Leopoldina President, he was an ad personam member of the Scientific Advisory Board of the UN Secretary General (UNSAB) between 2014 and 2016. At UNSAB, 26 scientists from all over the world advised the UN Secretary General on sustainability issues with a global dimension.
