AbstractScientists and engineers participate in international regulatory processes in a variety of ways. This teaching module, developed to be used in conjunction was case studies developed through the International Dimensions of Ethics Education in Science and Engineering project, seeks to better define participation, particularly responsibleparticipation, by delineating several categories of participation: epistemic communities, professional associations, scientists as citizen-advocates, scientists as employees of private organizations, and scientists as government officials. It will also examine the various channels of influence open to each type of participation.
