Raising the standards of science communication in Forensic Science

Heather Doran (Lead / Corresponding author), Niamh Nic Daeid, Julie Burrill

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther


This session will discuss the global importance and challenge of science communication in the context of forensic science. The communication of forensic science takes place both in and outside of the courtroom. It needs to engage specialist and non-specialist audiences simultaneously while being inclusive, open and upholding the values of the science. It is placed on the stand and under scrutiny in a court of law.

How can the public be engaged with developments in this area when the technology applied to forensic science moves forward so quickly? How can training in forensic science communication be integrated into careers for forensic scientists – what needs to be addressed? This session includes panel members from around the world who will share their perspectives of the particular challenges forensic science communication faces and potential interventions, including citizen science approaches. The panel will invite attendees to new ideas and thoughts about how we address whether these interventions are successful.
