Learn about global efforts to expand access to science
Find out how the United Nations is expanding access to scientific
progress at the APA’s Annual Convention session “The Human Right to
Benefit from Science,” on Aug. 7, 10 a.m.–11: 50 a.m.
Presenters will share progress on the effort to share scientific
advancements in psychology, medicine, engineering, conservation
and education. Speakers Margaret W. Vitullo, PhD, of the American
Sociological Association, and Jessica Wyndham, JD, of the American
Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), will present data
from a report that includes the first systematic empirical evidence on
scientists’ views on the meaning of the human right to benefit from
scientific progress and its applications. The report — which was well-received by the United Nations last year — includes data from 17 focus
groups with 145 scientists and engineers, including psychologists,
conducted by the AAAS Science and Human Rights Coalition, a group
of more than 50 societies, including APA and its Div. 9 (Society for the
Psychological Study of Social Issues).
Psychologist Maria E. Torre, PhD, of the City University of New
York, will discuss people’s right to participate in research and highlight
efforts to make psychological research a more public and democratic
initiative. Clinton Anderson, PhD, APA’s representative on the coalition’s
Service to the STEM community working group, will chair the session.
