Reframing Trust in Science: What Are the Lessons for Science Journalism?

English Track

Desciption

The International Science Council in its forthcoming report ‘The Contextualization Deficit: Reframing Trust in Science for Multilateral Policy’ draws on the current state of research across a range of disciplines to critique the limits of the typical science-policy interface. The report suggests that there needs to be a more sophisticated approach to the way science is socialized and how we understand what ‘trust in science’ actually means. This includes ideas about how we move away from information management in efforts to achieve public uptake. Most importantly, the paper calls for more effort to understand what it calls the drivers of contextualization in public responses to science and sets outs some measures to achieve this. What role does this approach suggest for science journalism?

During this session, the authors of the report will present their ideas about the problem and the nature of the solution. This will be followed by reflections from leading editors in the world of science journalism.

The report is produced in collaboration with the UNESCO Chair on Science Communication for the Public Good by the ISC Centre for Science Futures.
