Science for Peace

From the journal Chemistry International


ICSU’s Committee on Freedom and Responsibility in Science issued a statement from the World Science Forum, where it held its 23rd meeting 6-8 November 2017, highlighting the role of science as the bedrock of a peaceful and equitable world. The statement fed into the closing declaration of the World Science Forum 2017.

“On the occasion of the World Science Forum, the Committee on Freedom and Responsibility in Science of the International Council for Science salutes the theme of Science for Peace. There is a greater opportunity than ever before to harness the insights, knowledge and technical progress fuelled by advances in science and technology to promote an equitable world, anchored in peaceful relations among nations and citizens. The conduct of science flourishes in times of peace. The free circulation of ideas and people is central to supporting a peaceful world. For the sciences and scientists, free interchange of ideas, and freedom to pursue questions of scientific merit, support their responsibilities to apply the best scientific methods, models and research to improve the lives and wellbeing of the world’s peoples. Scientists and science organisations serve as ambassadors for peace and as conduits across nations and national interests, in their focus on global wellbeing.”
