From: Human Rights Quarterly
Volume 32, Number 4, November 2010
pp. 1008-1017 | 10.1353/hrq.2010.0023



Three case studies involving scientists from different disciplines that contribute their expertise to advancing human rights in the US and abroad are discussed. Scientific research can have a greater impact on society if directed towards solving problems relevant to human rights. Progress in science and technology can be abused, leading to violations of human rights, but can also benefit humanity. Scientists have an opportunity to play an active role in preserving human rights.
