The important role played by science and technology and the potential for dual use makes it imperative to assess scientific research and its products not only on their scientific, but also on their human rights merits. The talk focuses on the right to science – a little known but, the presenter argues, potentially powerful human right which is outlined in several important human rights instruments, including the 1948 United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Classified as a cultural human rights, this right opens up science to lines of inquiry emphasising ethics and prioritising human rights and human-centered considerations above commercial interests.
