Our Mission

The NeuroRights Initiative works at the grass-roots and policy level, protecting human rights by encouraging responsible leadership within the fields of Neurotechnology and AI.


The NeuroRights Initiative has three primary missions: 

Our advocacy mission is to support policy and legal institutions as they develop and ratify NeuroRights provisions. The NRI collaboratively develops policy frameworks and works with governing bodies to implement legislation. This work includes drafting ethical guidance documents for public and private sector actors and publishing white papers on emerging topics of relevance.

Our public outreach mission is to raise the profile of the human rights risks associated with Neurotechnology and AI. The NRI organizes events and distributes information through various media channels. We hold open debate forums to educate the public about how neurotechnology could impact lives and communities.

Our partnership mission is to mobilize new actors within academia, tech, governments, international organizations, and human rights institutions to incorporate NeuroRights into their mandate.
