This essay competition was created to inspire students to explore connections between human rights and science, engineering and the health professions.
Students may write on any topic at the intersection of science and/or technology with human rights.
For example, potential essay topics might include: the applications of a scientific approach or a new technology to address specific human rights concerns; an analysis of synergies between human rights obligations and the social responsibilities of scientists, engineers and/or health professionals; or the ways in which full implementation of the right to enjoy the benefits of scientific progress may influence realization of other human rights.
These examples are only provided to spark ideas: students are encouraged to write essays that reflect their own ideas, interests, and insights.
As the organisation named after Monsieur René Cassin – the ‘father of the Declaration’ – this competition is part of our programme to mark the UDHR’s anniversary.
We are delighted that Joshua Rozenberg, Britain’s best known commentator on the law, will judge this year’s entries.
