This roundtable will bring together marine scientists, social scientists and legal researchers who have experience in contributing to UN policy processes on the ocean. Researchers will share their personal stories of how they became involved in UN negotiations and what they have learnt about how to provide the "science that's needed" to international policy-makers.

The roundtable will be followed by an open discussion on the challenges of balancing advocacy and scientific advice, establishing cooperation between academic researchers and activists, and ensuring access to policy processes for scientists from the Global South.

The discussion will also address the role of funding for enhancing the science-policy interface as a contribution to the UN Decade of Ocean Science.
