At the AAAS Science and Human Rights Conference, participants will learn from successes and challenges of collaborations between scientists, engineers, health professionals, and human rights defenders; identify emerging needs and opportunities; and help set the agenda for future collaborative action and impact. The conference is hosted by the AAAS Science and Human Rights Coalition, a network of scientific and engineering membership organizations that recognize a role for science and scientists in human rights.
Marking the Coalition’s tenth anniversary and looking forward to the next ten years, sessions will share innovative developments and applications in science and technology that can support the efforts of human rights practitioners, as well as those that tackle human rights challenges associated with the conduct of science and application of technology.
