IAB presidential address: bioethics in a globalized world: creating space for flourishing human relationships


Biller-Andorno, N (2011). IAB presidential address: bioethics in a globalized world: creating space for flourishing human relationships. Bioethics, 25(8):430-436.

Abstract

Bioethics in a globalized world is meeting a number of challenges - fundamentalism in its different forms, and a focus on economic growth neglecting issues such as equity and sustainability, being prominent among them. How well are we as bioethicists equipped to make meaningful contributions in these times? The paper identifies a number of restraints and proceeds to probe potential resources such as the capability approach, care ethics, cosmopolitanism, and pragmatism. These elements serve to outline a perspective that focuses on the preconditions for flourishing human relationships as a way to address bioethical challenges in a globalized world.
