Indian Science Philosophy, Structure and Policies
23 June 2020, Tuesday, 1130 hrs
Speaker: Prof RK Sharma
Greetings from the NIAS Global Politics Course & the Science Diplomacy Programme.
Science and Technology have always been of great importance to the study of global politics, and the COVID-19 has further underlined the importance of it. So much so, that we are looking at a "post-COVID world order"!
As a part of our Course discussions, we are initiating a series of discussions towards understanding the role of S&T in global politics and inviting scientists and senior diplomats to discuss the subject.
This series is being organised by NIAS in collaboration with Stella Maris College (Department of International Studies), Chennai and the University of Mysore (Department of International Relations).
We will be grateful if you could kindly take part in these online discussion series depending on your schedule. Looking forward to your participation. We are using the Zoom platform.
