American Academy of Arts and Sciences

For The Challenges For International Scientific Partnerships Project

This project will document and analyze cross-national scientific collaborations to address three questions: (a) what are the benefits of international scientific partnerships, particularly in cases where diplomatic relations are strained; (b) what are the structural barriers; and (c) what can be done to ameliorate these obstacles. The solutions to structural obstacles will be based on historical case studies drawn from multiple scientific disciplines (e.g., chemistry, physics, biomedical science, earth science, and social science). The results of the work will inform academic institutions in the United States and abroad, as well as public and private funders.

These funds will support the American Academy of Arts and Sciences to disseminate the report of the Commission on the Practice of Democratic Citizenship and support concrete steps toward implementing its recommendations. The commission will learn from outreach and partners how it can most effectively advance specific recommendations. Additional resources will enable Academy staff and members of the commission to present the report and recommendations to influential audiences around the country and pursue extensive partnership opportunities to advance the commission’s work, with the goal of enabling more Americans to participate as effective citizens in a diverse 21st century democracy.
