Normativity in Bioethics Conference

9 mei 2016 - 10 mei 2016 | Heilige Geestcollege - KU Leuven | Center for Healthcare Ethics, Research Unit of Theological and Comparative Ethics, Center for Biomedical Ethics and Law

In bioethical publications and debates, the concept normativity is often used without consideration of the difficulties surrounding it.

This is in fact surprising as within bioethics claims for normativity compete. We also cannot merely assume that a Western understanding of normative bioethics will be unproblematic in bioethics in non-Western cultures and religions. These fundamental problems challenge the current understanding of normativity in bioethics and need to be addressed in order to be able to understand and develop appropriate answers to bioethical issues in a globalized world.

This conference will bring together contributions of specialists in bioethics and related disciplines with the aim of exploring new ways of understanding normativity in bioethics.

The conference will be open to a broader academic audience (graduate students and researchers).
