Alexandra Huneeus has published a symposium titled the "The Universal Declaration of Human Rights at 70 and the Future of Being Human," in AJIL Unbound, a publication of the American Society of International Law. The symposium, honoring the Universal Declaration's 70th birthday on Dec. 10, includes an article by Alta Charo, "Germline Engineering and Human Rights."
Alta Charo helped draft the concluding statement of the Second International Summit on Human Genome Editing in Hong Kong. The statement criticized a Chinese researcher's reported use of CRISPR technology to edit the genes of twin girls while they were embryos. Charo served as both a member of the summit's organizing committee and as a speaker at the event.
