This year, the Vrije Universiteit Brussel will award six honorary doctorates to pioneering scientists and socially engaged people. They are secretary-general of Amnesty International Agnès Callamard, co-founder of Scholars at Risk Robert Quinn, economist Mariana Mazzucato, celebrated international law scientist Martti Koskenniemi, mathematician Efim Zelmanov and physiologist Andrew Jones.
