Last week Gretchen Gano, CSTMS Associate Director of Research, joined colleagues in the Expert and Citizen Assessment of Science and Technology (ECAST) Network on a panel called “Adding the Citizen Voice: Participatory Socio-Scientific Policymaking” in Boston at the annual AAAS meeting. This was a panel of technology assessment practitioners representing international and U.S. perspectives who presented motivations, methods, tools, and results from specific local, national, and global citizen consultations held on issues such as climate and energy policy, asteroid detection and defense, and nuclear waste siting. After the presentation panelists solicited ideas from attendees recommended strategies, challenges, and opportunities for increasing the citizen voice in socio-scientific policymaking.
