What is ISYP?

ISYP is a global and interdisciplinary network of students and young professionals concerned with the interface of science, technology, society and ethics. Inspired by the Pugwash Conferences on Science and World Affairs, ISYP, with its own goals and agenda, tackles global challenges through cross-national track II dialogue. ISYP not only helps to introduce the younger generation to the principles and objectives of the Pugwash Conferences, but also provides a plural forum for students and young professionals to critically examine and explore the motivations for scientific advancements and the corollaries of technology on the everyday lives of people. More information about the history of ISYP can be found here.

If you are a student or early-career individual passionate about cross-national dialogue in these areas, we would love for you to join ISYP’s initiatives—or even create your own, with ISYP’s potential support or partnership. More information about how to get involved can be found here.
