Researchers are often interested in investigating sensitive topics as mental health, risky behaviours, drug use, sexuality, personal expenses, tax evasion, etc. Data on these topics often rely on sensitive questions, which are often hard to elicit given privacy concerns, the social desirability of the answer, and/or the fear of disclosure to third parties. The course introduces the concepts of social desirability, misreporting and the cognitive process of asking sensitive questions in surveys.

The special theme of the 2017 Meeting is "Economists and Policy Making". The profession of economics is facing criticism and discontent after recent failures to policies to revive stagnant economies and boost middle-class incomes. In part this criticism reflects the considerable influence wielded by economists working for government agencies, central banks or academic institutions and providing advice to policy makers. This raises some urgent questions. What should be the place and the role of economists in our societes?

Science is exciting, enlightening, complex, fundamental, precise, logical, and creative, all at the same time. However, for the public to get in touch with it and understand why it encompasses all these concepts, efforts need to be made to bridge science and society. With this aim, communication teams at research infrastructures work with a range of methods and channels. They make complex information more tangible and disseminate it as broadly as possible so that the public can understand and be engaged.
