Geospatial Science and Human Rights

The American Association for the Advancement of Science recently launched its new Science and Human Rights Coalition. Its mission is “to improve human rights practitioners’ access to scientific information and knowledge and to engage scientists in human rights issues, particularly those issues that involve scientists and the conduct of science.” The report mentions the “valuable tools and expertise” scientists have to contribute, including geospatial technologies, and encourages groups such as GIS Corps to continue volunteering.
