Agenda

AAAS Science and Human Rights Coalition Meeting
The Right to Science
July 27-28, 2017
#shrcoalition

Throughout the first day, participants will discuss the right to enjoy the benefits of scientific progress and its applications. Sessions will highlight briefings on research recently completed by AAAS and members of the AAAS Science and Human Rights Coalition, examples of ways in which scientists are using Article 15 to frame their research, and the "sticky questions" the right raises on its own and in relation to other, more fully articulated and widely codified human rights.

Coalition meetings convene scientists, engineers, and health professionals with human rights leaders and policy makers to discuss emerging issues at the nexus of science and human rights. The Coalition serves as a catalyst for the increased involvement of scientific, engineering, and health associations and their members in human rights-related activities.
