The AAAS Science and Human Rights Coalition is hosting an open meeting on Jan. 31 – Feb. 1, 2013, focused on the intersections between children’s rights, science, and technology. The meeting will explore new opportunities and challenges for research on children’s rights; urgent children’s rights issues in the U.S. on which science and technology could have an impact; the positive and negative effects of the Internet for protecting children’s rights; and the implications of children’s rights for research ethics and professional responsibility.
The Coalition is comprised of 45 scientific and engineering organizations, including FABBS, that recognize a need for scientists and engineers in realizing human rights.
The Coalition is led by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and was launched in 2008.
