Démystifier l’image du ‹savant›

La difficulté de venir à bout des zones d’ombre de la communication scientifique a été présentée de manière évocatrice par Gilles Hernot (Musée d’histoire des sciences de Genève) à l’exemple de la nuit de la science de Genève. Bien que le festival s’est déroulé en été en bordure du lac Léman avec un programme culturel et d’animation varié, 70% des visiteurs étaient titulaires d’un diplôme universitaire. Que faut-il donc faire de plus pour atteindre les personnes qui n’entrent généralement pas en contact avec la science ? Cette question fut au centre de l’événement « Les zones d’ombre de la communication scientifique » du 27 mai 2016 à Berne.

Weapons: making, selling and using them

Swiss legislators are currently debating dual-use goods, such as the kitchen knife, the perfect example of a product that is both utensil and weapon. They’re trying to find a solution to the inevitable moral issues that arise out of legislating the arms trade, in particular defining categories of military goods and of authorised export-destination countries.

Making the Commodity Sector Work for Developing Countries - Local Impacts, Global Links, and Knowledge Gaps

Switzerland occupies an important position in the global trade of hard and soft commodities. Companies headquartered within its borders directly or indirectly shape commodity extraction practices around the world, some of which carry considerable negative environmental and social risks on the ground, particularly in fragile contexts. Minimizing these risks and maximizing shared economic gains could enable mutually beneficial development and counteract persistent social and political inequality.
