What is the intersection between science and political/social issues? Do scientists and researchers have an obligation to address issuesof social relevancy? Does doing so taint the purpose of science? Should the public or the government expect or demand involvement from the scientific community on relevant social concerns? How can complex scientific issues be fairly presented by the media?
Scientists and Engineers for a Better Society has organized a panel discussion to address these pressing questions.
