EUROPE FOR FREEDOM AND SCIENCE

11 Proposals for candidates in European parliament elections proposed by: Science for Democracy and Associazione Luca Coscioni

The continuous development of knowledge and applications in the biomedical field and other aspects of public life, made possible by technological innovation, demands that science, and the opinions of scientists, be taken duly into consideration when legislative decisions are taken. Scientific criteria must complement value and evidence-based decisions IF the decision-making process is to be truly effective and in line with international obligations, particularly human rights obligations.

In this regard, the European Court of Human Rights, as well as the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, have stated that national authorities must perform a thorough assessment of rules governing medical or technological issues taking into account the dynamic developments in science and society, which must be kept under consideration
