May 16th, Morning: Public Forum — “Negotiating the Arctic: a Science Diplomacy Perspective” @ McGill University

The Arctic Council was established in 1996 as a high level intergovernmental organization for cooperation, coordination, and interaction among its eight member states, six Arctic Indigenous communities, and other Arctic inhabitants, mainly focussing on issues related to sustainable development and environmental protection in the Arctic. With global climate change causing increased melting of ice in the Arctic, there is demand for more robust science and technological cooperation. This requires increased political cooperation and diplomatic efforts. This forum will discuss how the foundation of science diplomacy has been established in the Arctic as well as the possible future trajectories.
Confirmed Speakers
Dr. Paul Berkman (Professor of Practice in Science Diplomacy, Tufts)
Dr. Melody Brown Burkins (Associate Director, John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding, Dartmouth College)
Dr. Louis Fortier (Professor, Université Laval)
Dr. Angela Nuliayok-Rudolph (Policy Advisor, Polar Knowledge Canada)
May 16th, Afternoon: “When the Science is not Enough: an Arctic Council Negotiation Simulation” @ McGill University
This workshop, developed by experts at Dartmouth College, will introduce and discuss the role of students and young scientists in science diplomacy. The aim of the workshop is to generate recommendations on how to improve young scientists’ engagement in science diplomacy. Specifically, student participants will gain an understanding of the skills (analytical, ethical) to apply science in a diplomatic framework through an Arctic Council negotiation simulation. During this event, student “delegates” will debate a topical issue associated with the Arctic Council. We welcome all students, post docs or early career researchers between 18 and 35 years old to apply.
Please note: while the main simulation is on May 16th, it is also mandatory for student participants to attend the simulation preparation session on May 2nd (morning).
May 17th, Afternoon: Panel Discussions: Students as Stakeholders in Science Diplomacy: Outlooks for Today and Tomorrow? @ Hotel OMNI
A series of panel discussions directed at government and diplomacy institutions. Experts and stakeholders will participate in panel discussions on how students and young scientists fit into the framework of science diplomacy, including its various sectors, participating agencies, challenges, and its future and potential for action. This event will provide a unique opportunity for participants to hear from and network with experts from a wide variety of disciplines and institutions.
Confirmed Panel Speakers:
Dr. Paul Berkman (Professor of Practice in Science Diplomacy, Tufts)
Dr. Masha Cemma (Policy Advisor at the Office of Canada’s Chief Science Advisor)
Dr. Martha Crago (Vice Principal Research & Innovation, McGill University)
Dr. Rees Kassen (Research Chair in Experimental Evolution, University of Ottawa)
Dr. Jan Marco Muller (Science to Policy and Diplomacy Coordinator, IIASA)
Dr. Rémi Quirion (Chief Scientist of Quebec)
Dr. Tom Wang (Director, Centre for Science Diplomacy, AAAS)
Impact for students:
The workshop on Day 1 will provide students with a deeper understanding of the role science can play in international diplomacy, as well as the complexities of bringing science into high-level policymaking. This should help prepare students to participate in panel discussions and to network with experts and leaders in science diplomacy on Day 2.
