Science and diplomacy

In this week’s podcast: We talk to David Clary, the first chief scientific adviser to the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office about science and diplomacy and how the UK government finds out what is happening scientifically in other countries, and we hear from Professor Steven Bishop of University College London about an ambitious plan to computerise the social sciences and policy-making.

Presented by Clive Cookson with Andrew Jack and Diana Garnham.
