We support scholarship and promote awareness of how science and the humanities enrich our lives and benefit society. We believe that good research needs to be promoted, sustained and communicated. The Academy is run by a Council of its members. Membership is by election and considered the highest Academic honour in Ireland.

Human Rights and the Social Sciences Symposium

CPD: This event will attract 4 CPD points and certificates of attendance will be available.

The human rights movement has done a great deal of good in improving the lives of people around the globe, however its embodiment as an ‘ethics of progress’ is increasingly being questioned. This one-day symposium explores the relationship between human rights and the social sciences, their differences of approach and their mutually complementary roles.
