STI, peace and social inclusion
Generally, agents in academia and society admit that knowledge contributes to the construction of peace and equity. However, there is an obvious tension between what is considered as "scientific knowledge" and "other types of knowledge," and the role they play in favor of inclusion and prosperity. This tension is also evident among the actors that design public policies for the promotion of science, technology and innovation (STI). The present track seeks to contrast these visions, and identify intermediate points that allow a more fluid communication between the different types of knowledge that intervene in the construction of an equitable society and in transition towards peace. Likewise, it aims to identify the way in which existing STI policies (national or sectoral) are influenced by the tension between scientific knowledge and other types of knowledge, according to the participating actors, their disciplinary commitments and the social fields at stake.
