AbstractThis paper is intended to serve as a background paper for the 1976 Pugwash Symposium which focuses on the ethical problems in science, namely, the requirement of openness in the international scientific community, the responsibility of scientists to inform public opinion, the role of ethical values in scientific research, the ethical problems faced by scientists in the struggle for global survival, and the development of an international code of ethics for scientists. The background paper explores the role Pugwash can play in furthering the impact of ethical values and social responsibility within the international community of science.
