APSA-AAAS Webinar: Political Science and Human Rights – Exploring the Connections

Date: Wednesday, October 4, 2017
Time: 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time

Human rights connect to political science in diverse ways, both as an area of study within the discipline and as a body of norms that informs and affects an array of activities across political science. This webinar will explore these intersections through an introduction to key human rights instruments and a discussion of ways to engage human rights issues in teaching, research, and service in subfields throughout the discipline. The webinar also will address the human rights standards that apply to scholarly activities and discuss protecting the rights of political scientists and the right to benefit from scientific progress. Sponsored by APSA and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
