Science and human rights

By "human rights" we refer at least to The Universal Declaration on Human Rights [link] and we refer to the Covenants thereto [link].

Article 27 of The Universal Declaration on Human Rights says that "Everyone has the right freely . . . to share in scientific advancement and its benefits."

Science does contribute materially to human rights. Science can also contribute normatively to human rights, especially the example of scientists with many different points of view and many different skills sets working together embracing those differences doing amazing things.
