Bringing science and development together through news and analysis

Science in the Service of Human Rights

"[This book] offers an excellent text for anyone wishing to learn about human rights. Claude believes that should include all of us, and he holds that researchers and students in every scientific discipline need to be aware of the links between science and human rights. Scientists must understand the concepts of scientific freedom and responsibility (including respect for human dignity and the right of the public to share in the benefits and applications of their work). Reading and absorbing Science in the Service of Human Rights can help them do so."
