PHYS 405 - Science, Technology, and Public Policy

The United States faces challenges which include climate change, energy independence, human genomics, nano-technology, and modified food crops. The process by which public policy decisions are made, currently and historically, in the federal government is examined with an eye to the role scientists, advocacy groups, industry, researchers, national laboratories and individual citizens play in setting public policy. The role played by political values in setting the research agenda is explored.
