AAAS Science and Human Rights Coalition Meeting: The Right to Science

  • AAAS Headquarters 1200 New York Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20005 United States (map)

At the July Coalition Meeting, we will focus on the right to enjoy the benefits of scientific progress and its applications. If you have been involved in any of the Coalition's groundbreaking work around Article 15 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR), or if you are interested in getting involved, please register ASAP! This is a meeting you don't want to miss.

As always, we will be joined by fantastic speakers, including Mikel Mancisidor, a member of the United Nations committee that oversees implementation of Article 15. We will also hear from Barth Knoppers, Andrea Boggio, Mike Frick, Patricia Carbajales, and Stephen Marks, all leaders of initiatives to implement this right. Together, we'll dig into the "sticky questions" around the right to science through small group discussions designed to inform and support the fast-moving international discussions about what the right means to practice.
