Scientists must protect and promote human rights: It is principled and in their interest

A lecture about scientists imprisoned for their scientific beliefs and activities around the world, and their struggle for freedom.


COUNCIL FOR ASSISTING REFUGEE ACADEMICS 80TH ANNIVERSARY LECTURE

National science academy members worldwide, concerned about dozens of unjustly imprisoned colleagues (none of whom advocates violence but many are tortured, some are murdered) use their high-level connections, cultural/political knowledge, and personal prestige, along with that of their academies, to defend the rights of such colleagues and to ameliorate their plight. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is the cornerstone of their efforts and includes rights essential to scientists and scientific progress.

The speaker will describe selected science and human rights issues around the globe, individual cases, and how scientists and their academies help resolve them.
