2012 Berlin Conference on "Evidence for Sustainable Development"
Paper proposals are invited for the 2012 Berlin Conference on "Evidence for Sustainable Development", which is jointly organised by the Environmental Policy Research Centre at FU Berlin and the LIAISE Network of Excellence. The conference theme addresses the knowledge basis of political decisions required for sustainable development, the construction of evidence, and the ways evidence is used in decision-making.
The conference aims at bringing together scientists from different disciplines and strands of research that produce evidence to support decision-making for sustainable development, and those that study the use of such evidence. Furthermore, policy-makers and practitioners working at the science-policy interface or dealing with issues of evidence use in policy-making are invited to share their experiences.
The conference will be held in Berlin on 5-6 October, 2012. Paper proposals are expected by 1 April, 2012. All paper submissions will be reviewed by an international review panel. Notification of the decision will be sent by email no later than 30 June, 2012. Full papers are expected by 15 September, 2012.
