そういえばネイチャーに Published online 3 June 2009 | Nature | doi:10.1038/news.2009.539 Warning for diplomats over misuse of science Use science to build partnerships, urge government science advisers. てのが載っていました。
"Science diplomacy is not the same as the use of science in diplomacy," Fedoroff told the meeting attended by scientists and science diplomats from around the world, adding that she interprets science diplomacy as the "use of science to build partnerships".
Echoing Fedoroff, Beddington said, "there is a danger of using the uncertainties in science for diplomatic and political ends".
A former UK representative on the scientific committee of the International Whaling Commission (IWC), Beddington criticized the IWC's "highly politicized" use of science.
The commission, which governs the conduct of whaling worldwide, last month failed to secure an agreement on proposals to end Japan's whaling activities in the Antarctic. Japan hunts whales under a loophole in the IWC convention that allows "lethal research" on cetaceans.
