Effective incorporation of scientific knowledge into public policy requires effective dialogue among scientists, policy makers, and the general public. How can this be accomplished so that all three groups have confidence in the processes leading to policies? What are the appropriate roles for scientists? What are the appropriate uses of science? Suggested answers will be proposed.
