SciBeh Workshop 2024 on Epistemic Boundaries

Online (hosted by University of Bristol, UK)
6-7 March 2024

SciBeh is committed to enhancing knowledge management in crisis situations within the behavioral sciences. We have organized several workshops aimed at bridging the gap between researchers and policymakers. These workshops have covered topics such as collective intelligence in science communication and creating online environments to facilitate information sharing.

In this workshop, we want to address the role and limitations of expertise in providing policy advice during crises. Currently, societies are confronted with crises such as pandemics and climate change, which necessitate collective action. The complex nature of these issues inherently demands interdisciplinary expertise for effective resolution. However, offering expertise on issues that extend beyond the scope of a single discipline carries the risk of 'epistemic trespassing'—making judgments in a field beyond one's expertise.
