Position statement—The Australian Academy of Science and international relations

4 May 2015

Academies of science are typically independent from government and can play an important role in maintaining dialogue between nations when there are serious diplomatic issues.

The Australian Academy of Science believes that scientist-to-scientist engagement should transcend political and religious beliefs and provide continuing opportunity for nations to engage in harmonious dialogue and co-existence.

These principles are consistent with Statute 5 of the International Council for Science to which the Academy subscribes.
