Scientific Responsibility, Human Rights and Law Program

On-call Scientists


Launched in October 2008, On-call Scientists connects scientists interested in volunteering their skills and knowledge with human rights organizations that are in need of scientific expertise.


Scientists have much to contribute to the work being undertaken by human rights organizations, national human rights institutions, and United Nations field offices throughout the world. On-call Scientists was created to facilitate such contributions. Through On-call Scientists, human rights organizations gain access to vital technical assistance to enhance their work and scientists have the opportunity to contribute to and gain a better understanding of human rights.
