Towards a Coalition for the Right to Science?

On 21 October, during the Science, Technology and Human Rights Conference 2021 of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Science for Democracy and Treatment Action Group will hold a side event. The networking session will introduce the emerging Coalition for the Right to Science. The Coalition for the Right to Science (CRtS) was launched in 2021 to bring together individuals, organizations and decision-makers working towards the affirmation of the Right to Science as defined in article 15 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights of 1966, and further explained in General Comment n. 25 of 2020. 

In this networking session, Coalition founders from TAG and SfD will introduce the Coalition’s purpose, outline tentative areas of work, and most importantly discuss with attendees how to make the Coalition a collaborative space for those working to put the right to science into practice.
