International Science Policy. A Compilation of Papers Prepared for the 12th Meeting of the Panel on Science and Technology.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Science and Technology.
The papers included in this compilation were presented at the 1971 meeting of the Panel on Science and Technology of the U. S. House of Representatives Committee on Science and Astronautics, and concern various aspects of international science policy. The papers include an address by the Secretary of State on "U. S. Foreign Policy in a Technological Age," and reports by U. S. and foreign scientists and administrators. The reports concern international cooperation in the physical, social, life and environmental (including marine) sciences; administrative mechanisms for increasing cooperation, including the necessary prelude of a national science policy; the role of legislation in advancing cooperation; the role of a science policy in solving social problems, military and arms control, and the potential consequences of experimentation with human eggs. Although all papers have international implications, one deals specifically with science, technology and the developing countries. (AL)
