Sharing knowledge for Peace
2021 III 2023
The African scientific community is invited to reflect upon the need to define a set of ethical rules that would apply to scientists in their research and knowledge transfer activities. These ethical rules could be included in a document to be drawn up, called “The Oath of Ishango”, in homage to the rod of Ishango, the earliest man-made object of a scientific nature, found in Ishango, in Central Africa.
The SCIENTIFIC OATH ISHANGO is currently on the agenda with the DRC Presidency for the African Union.
