Chapter Summary

Many important thoughts have been developed and discussed in relation to right of everyone to enjoy the benefits of scientific progress and its applications (REBSPA), usually in the context of UNESCO and, amongst academics. William Schabas, Audrey Chapman, Yvonne Donders, Flavio Valente and many others have tried to outline the content and relevance of Article 15(1) b International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR or Covenant) for modern human rights realization. All commentators seem to agree that the wording of Article 15(1) b ICESCR is bland, abstract, and does not reveal clearly the scope, purpose and functions that could be associated with the REBSPA. The Venice Meeting organized by the UNESCO and the EIUC in July 2009 issued a "Venice Statement" on the REBSPA and outlined some of the major conceptual challenges facing in-depth analysis of Article 15(1) b ICESCR.
