SCIENCE ADVICE FOR POLICY
BY EUROPEAN ACADEMIES

Natasha Gardiner on science for policy in Antarctica

Listen on:

How is Antarctica governed, and why do scientists play such a key role in running it? What science advice structures exist to advise Antarctic decision-makers, and how do they function? Can the whole science-as-governance system, designed in the 1950s, survive into the 21st century?

Natasha Gardiner discusses these questions with Toby Wardman of SAPEA. We also discuss decision-making deadlock, saving seals, and how to start a new human colony on one of Saturn’s moons.
