We are a group of scientists and human rights activists dedicated to promoting the intersection of science and human rights and building a bridge of communication between our communities. The rights of scientists, our right to scientific progress, and science in the service of human rights all protect the basic dignity of humanity. The Coalition will provide an open forum for educating the community and working for the greater application of these rights through local and international activism and advocacy.
The Education Directorate of the CWRU Science and Human Rights Coalition will provide educational opportunities for members to increase their understanding of the intersection of science and human rights in order to improve the human rights knowledge of scientists and the scientific knowledge of human rights advocates.
