34 No. 5
The universality of science, in its broadest sense, is about developing a truly global scientific community on the basis of equity and non-discrimination. Underpinning this broader concept of universality is the Principle of the Universality of Science (ICSU Statute 5), which deals with the free and responsible practice of science and also requires freedom of movement and of association. These rights and responsibilities extend to organizers and sponsors of international scientific meetings, as well as participants.
In June 2012, the ICSU Committee on Freedom and Responsibility in the Conduct of Science issued recommendations to help avoid difficulties and improve the chances of a positive resolution where problems do occur. The recommendations are available on the Freedom and Responsibility portal.
