Video Series Highlights Science and Human Rights Partnerships
A 5 December reception held at AAAS headquarters celebrated International Human Rights Day with the debut of a video series chronicling the successes of the AAAS On-call Scientists program. Launched in 2008, the program matches scientists, engineers and health professionals with human rights organizations requiring their technical expertise. In the years since, hundreds of experts from around the globe have signed up to contribute their time and skills. This video tells the story of how science and technology are being applied in support of human rights, as told by our volunteers and human rights partners.
