What's the Value of Social Science?

Lupia, Arthur; Surova, Svetluša

Arthur Lupia is the Hal R Varian Collegiate Professor of Political Science. He examines how people make decisions when they lack information and how they manage complex information flows. He has advised many science organisations on how to communicate science to broad audiences and how to convey complicated ideas in politicized contexts. He has received multiple honors for this work, including the Ithiel de Sola Pool Award from the American Political Science Association, and the (U.S.) National Academy of Sciences' Award for Initiatives in Research. He is an elected member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He has been a Guggenheim Fellow and was one of the inaugural Andrew Carnegie Fellows. In his opinion, the public value of science and transparency in research is up to scientists.
