Models of the global science system vary: In the core-periphery model one nation leads the world, imitated by the rest. The competitive model reflects underlying political tensions and alliances. Such models influence science policy, yet, they may not be accurate. Understanding the motivations for cooperation, building capacity and excellence in a multipolar world, are critical to effective future science policy. This talk will discuss alternative models for understanding the emerging system.
