Science, Technology and Human Rights Conference

Presented by the AAAS Science and Human Rights Coalition

The Science, Technology and Human Rights Conference, hosted by the AAAS Science and Human Rights Coalition, takes place annually at the AAAS headquarters in Washington, DC. This conference brings together human rights leaders from around the world, academic researchers across different disciplines, scientists and engineers who work in private industry, government officials, members of impacted and vulnerable communities, and students in science, engineering, human rights, health and law. Together we share progress made towards building effective partnerships between the scientific community and human rights communities, identify and evaluate potential future actions, and develop collaborative, multidisciplinary approaches to the most urgent human rights challenges ahead of us.
