An article co-authored by Dr Rumiana Yotova and Prof. Bartha Knoppers on the right to benefit from science has been accepted for publication in the European Journal of International Law.

The right was first set out in the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and later affirmed in the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights. Dr Yotova, together with Professor Knoppers, studied the practice of UN Member States in giving effect to the right domestically. 

The announcement comes ahead of Prof. Knoppers third visit to LML in November 2018. During her stay, Prof Knoppers will deliver a seminar to LLM students on the topic of The Human Cell Atlas: Another Policy Frontier? This will be followed by a lunchtime talk on a recent special issue on genomic data sharing, lead by the Centre for Genomics and Policy at McGill University.
