About Us
Encompassing applied ethics, ELSI (ethical, legal, and societal impacts) and EVS (ethics and values studies), humanities policy seeks to develop interdisciplinary approaches to integrating ethics and values with science in order to better meet societal needs.

Humanities policy (HP) can make significant contributions to areas such as nanotechnology, homeland security, and global environmental change--in fact, in any area where science and technology intersect with broader societal interests.

HP research can help public science agencies and communities "complete the cycle" of scientific information, contextualizing this knowledge in a broad range of contexts for a broad range of audiences within the public.
