New report by the UNSRCR

15/03/2024 - 11:36

The UN Special Rapporteur on Cultural Rights, Alexandra Xanthaki, recently launched a new report focused on "The Right to Participate in Science".

The report intends to take stock of setbacks and progress both under international human rights law and in practice regarding access to scientific knowledge and its applications and to address the right to access and take part in scientific progress, in order to identify relevant experiences and challenges. The reports builds on the previous work of the mandate (Report on the right to enjoy the benefits of scientific progress and its applications, A/HRC/20/26, 2012), and of the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (General Comment 25 on Science and Economic, Social and Cultural rights, 2020), as well as on contributions from all regions of the world.

The report is available in all UN languages on this page (A/HRC/55/44), as well as on the website of the mandate.
