A network of scientific and engineering membership organizations that recognize a role for scientists and engineers in human rights.
The Coalition meets twice a year, always in January and July. Coalition meetings are open to all members, affiliates, and interested scientists.
These meetings provide an opportunity for participants to learn about topical issues lying at the intersection of science and human rights, and to take part in informational sessions, and trainings. Coalition meetings are also used as an opportunity for each of the area of activity working groups to meet.
The Coalition Council meets twice a year in conjunction with the bi-annual meetings to review and deliberate. The Council is the Coalition’s highest policy-making and priority-setting body. It sets the direction of the Coalition, reviews recommendations from working groups, considers new initiatives, and reviews requests for new working groups.
