Human Rights and Science Symposium
Tuesday, Sep 27 2016 12:00 am
SAR Board Member Domna Stanton will attend the Human Rights and Science Symposium hosted by the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina and the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts and will participate in a panel discussion titled “Efforts of Science Organisations to Support Suppressed Scientists and those Seeking Asylum in Europe.”
The German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina addresses key issues that society faces and works to frame discourses on a variety of social and political topics. Often the Academy publishes policy proposals and makes recommendations to governments. Similarly, the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts contributes to debates on some of the most pressing issues of our time, formulating solutions and making recommendations to the proper authorities.
