Science and Politics Initiative

Douglass Campus
Eagleton Institute of Politics

The Eagleton Science and Politics Initiative explores how science, technology, and politics intersect; the political systems that connect them; and how deeper understanding and clearer communication within and across these disciplines can benefit policymakers, scientists, and the larger public.

The Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences are a critical, pervasive and dynamic part of the political conversation on all levels of American government. Thus, through a variety of programs, the Initiative seeks to create opportunities for graduate students, post-docs and faculty to explore intersections between science and politics in order to increase their understanding of how politics affects this discipline, and how they can effectively engage with political and policymaking leaders and institutions.
