|SCIENCE AND CONFLICT|
|Student Pugwash NE Regional Conference: 21-22 February 2003|
A forum for students, professionals, and academics in the Northeast to engage in dialogue about the impact of science and technology on society.
Through a mix of panels, lectures, roundtable discussions and social events, the conference is designed to cover a range of perspectives
challenging participants to formulate their own opinions about the issues that
lie at the intersection of science and world affairs. This year's conference,
held at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government (directions), will focus on
the role of science and technology in conflict, from the development of
weapons of mass destruction to electronic surveillance and their
implications for issues of security, freedom, and ethics in general.
Student Pugwash USA is a student affiliate of the Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs, recipients of the 1995 Nobel Peace Prize. We are a group of undergraduate and graduate students dedicated to promoting the socially responsible use of science and technology.
