Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Vaccines, science, democracy

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


[Autom. eng. transl.] The complex theme of vaccines and their history, interwoven with intricate scientific, economic, regulatory and scientific policy issues, makes it difficult to articulate the various topics in an orderly way. The theme, however, strongly signals the "crisis" of credibility that science is facing, 3,4 above all, but not only, in its intersection with the institutional use of scientific knowledge to be placed at the foundation of public choices (policy-related science). This "crisis" expresses a historical moment of critical revision of the methods of validation of sciences and technologies and of the ethics of research itself, and a rethinking of the relationship between science and democracy.
