Higher Education and Human Rights

Universities and colleges are institutions with influence and power in their communities, nationally and worldwide, and thus have responsibilities to respect, protect and promote human rights. Join the AAAS Science and Human Rights Coalition for a symposium where we will explore the human rights responsibilities of academic institutions, how these obligations frame important issues such as inclusion, academic freedom, accountability, and community relationships, and ways the scientific community can help address these critical concerns.
