Science Diplomacy

The AAAS Center for Science Diplomacy builds bridges between communities, societies, and nations through closer interactions between science and diplomacy and elevates the role of science in foreign policy to address national and global challenges

Since its establishment in 2008, the Center has been a leader in conceptualizing science diplomacy as a critical aspect of science and international relations. The Center demonstrates how science can build bridges between societies where official relationships may be strained, strengthens interactions and partnerships between the scientific and diplomatic communities, and develops the intellectual framework and training to support the practice of science diplomacy.
