This round-table event celebrates "Science, a Human Right", marking the 70th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration for Human Rights and the 2017 UNESCO Recommendation on Science and Scientific Researchers.


The World Science Day for Peace and Development was established by UNESCO in 2001 and occurs every year on 10 November. The aim is to highlight the important role of science in society and the need to engage the wider public in debates on emerging and important contemporary issues relevant to science.

In 2018, the World Science Day is celebrated around the world under the theme "Science, a Human Right", marking the 70th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration for Human Rights (art. 27), and the 2017 UNESCO Recommendation on Science and Scientific Researchers.

A round-table event is organized on the afternoon of 9 November at UNESCO HQ, Paris, to discuss particularly how the right to science combines a right of all to access and participate in science and a right of all to benefit from scientific advancements and its applications. The event will be divided into two sessions. The first one will focus on the Human Right to science and the rights of scientific researchers, while the second session will focus on Open Science.
