The right to enjoy the results of scientific progress

The LSA’s Ethics Committee is currently running a questionnaire in conjunction with the AAAS‘s Science and Human Rights program. The questions are posted at and are aimed at exploring how linguistics can benefit society, what the potential barriers to access to the results of linguistics are, and what implications that has.

I imagine that fieldworkers have a lot to say about this (though the questions don’t just apply to fieldworkers). Please comment on the lsaethics blog! We welcome any comments, answers, or musings on this topic. Readers are also encouraged to write their own submissions to the AAAS.
