8th Postgraduate Bioethics Conference 2014

'Health law and bioethics at the frontiers of innovation'

The Postgraduate Bioethics Conference invites abstracts for its forthcoming conference on 4th and 5th September 2014 to be held at the University of Southampton, England. The Postgraduate Bioethics Conference is a highly prestigious annual conference aimed at doctoral researchers whose research involves bioethical analysis. Over the past seven years, the Postgraduate Bioethics Conference has become established as a leading environment for doctoral candidates to meet, network and present their work.

The Conference is a two-day event, designed to give opportunities for doctoral researchers involved in bioethical research to present their current work. The theme for this year’s Postgraduate Bioethics Conference is 'Health Law and Bioethics at the Frontiers of Innovation' and invites participants to reflect on the impact of new developments affecting bioethics and health and how these are informed and influenced by various ethical, moral, social, practical, legal and scientific viewpoints. 

Submissions should be e-mailed to the conference organizers Emma Nottingham and Alexander Chrysanthou by 30th June 2014 to: postgrad.bioethics@outlook.com. Abstracts should be in English, no more than 300 words, and in Word or preferably PDF format. Please note that you must be a registered postgraduate student, and we will only accept abstracts sent from a valid institutional email address. There will be an opportunity for those not giving a paper to register as attendees as soon as the call for papers ends. It is hoped that registration will be free for participants and attendees.

How does American civil society demand consideration of moral and ethical concerns in the decisions both to go to war and how the war will be prosecuted?

Suleimani Is Dead, but Diplomacy Shouldn’t Be
