“The premises of One Health” Sciences en Questions – INRAE (France)

On February 1st, Nicolas Lainé was invited as guest speaker by the French National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and the Environment (INRAE) to deliver a conference on One Health.

The lecture was organized by the research group Sciences en Questions .

Abstract: Nicolas Lainé invites us to grasp the opportunity offered by the international One Health initiative to reopen the scientific dialogue with other forms of human and non-human knowledge (animals, plants, viruses, etc.).

Based on his fieldwork in Asia, the speaker shows how local and/or lay knowledge is constituted, emphasizing its dynamic and constant recomposition. He emphasizes that health prevention and management practices (which result from such knowledge) often involve interdependence and interactions between different species. Yet the hybridization of knowledge is lost in the rationalization of scientific work. Reduced to the provision of information or data, the holders of this “other” knowledge are excluded from the knowledge production process. Nicolas Lainé proposes, on the contrary, to integrate all the richness and complexity of relationships with living organisms into a network of local human and non-human knowledge, and to consider all stakeholders as full partners in research.

Drawing on the promise of One Health, this conference questions our own research practices, the way we produce knowledge and what constitutes science.
