    1. Science Diplomacy Why, Where and How<br />Mandë Holford, PhD<br />City University of New York / The American Museum of Natural History<br />mholford@gc.cuny.edu/mholford@amnh.org<br />SD Boot Camp, NYAS, Jul 14, 2011<br />
    2. WHY is Science Diplomacy having a resurgence?<br />Resource Scarcity<br />Climate Change<br />Economic<br />Capacity <br />Building<br />Infectious diseases<br />Conflict Resolution<br />Global challenges with borderless complexities<br />
    3. WHY is Science Diplomacy having a resurgence?<br />“Science Tempur”<br />US-Soviet <br />relations<br />SESAME <br />Construction<br />In Middle East <br />“Silk Road”<br />China-Mesopotamia<br />History of international collaboration between scientists<br />
    4. WHY is Science Diplomacy having a resurgence?<br />We’re the good guys & gals…<br />Scientists & Technology have high poll numbers <br />
    5. WHERE is Science Diplomacy happening?<br />Practiced by BRIC (Brazil, Russia, China, India) countries…<br />Viewed as Western phenomena used for resources<br />Needs to be extended to other emerging states-Rwanda<br />
    6. HOW is Science Diplomacy Practiced?<br />“Scientific approach to diplomacy, not diplomatic approach to science…”<br />Involve local scientist –Academies, SEED project <br />Do place-based science: Arg, energy efficiency, malaria<br />
    7. HOW is Science Diplomacy Practiced?<br />Mr. BITE<br />Science Diplomat- AAAS Science &Technology Fellowship<br />MOUs-China +India (2005) hard and soft ware<br />Global Science Program for Security & Competiveness- Rep. Berman<br />
    8. HOW is Science Diplomacy Practiced?<br />Connecting Ecology and Peace<br />Peace Parks- demilitarized zone(Korea), Mesopotamia marshlands (Iraq and Iran) <br />NSF-USAID PEER launch Jul 7, 2011 (administrative barriers)<br />Collaboration of scientists innate to our work<br />
    9. HOW is Science Diplomacy Practiced?<br />Science not a replacement for politics….<br />Politics<br />Programming<br />Integrate big ”P”(politics) with small “p” (programming)<br />Integration that is iterative - all sectors doing the dance<br />
    10. HOW is Science Diplomacy Practiced?<br />Five Elements to SD framework:<br />1. Regional Prominence (China+ India)<br />2. Capacity Development (education)<br />3. Joint Infrastructure Development<br />(Research Satellites, LHC, SESAME)<br />4. Open Access Knowledge Distribution<br />5. Public Engagement (Civilian Power)<br />
    11. Barriers to Science Diplomacy<br />1. Asymmetries in S&T capacity<br />2. Economic/security concerns to <br />technology/knowledege access<br />3. Restrictions on exchange (visa)<br />4. S&T budgets in decline worldwide<br />5. Degree classicism (what’s in a name?)<br />
    12. Politicizing Science - “How does science taste?” <br />
