Scientific Experts and the Pressures of Pandemic Policy Advice

This project analyses how scientific expertise and trust can be generated under conditions of deep uncertainty and urgency, as illustrated by the current phase of the Covid-19 pandemic. It aims to develop a set of principles for guiding scientifically informed public debate and policy advice. Pooling the resources of philosophy of public health, philosophy of science, and social epistemology, the project fosters a critically informed public understanding of the science/public-policy interface.

This project is funded by the Volkswagen Foundation.

Team: Mathias Frisch, along with Axel Gelfert (Technische Universität Berlin) and Stephen John (Cambridge University).
