The UNESCO Bioethics Programme (1993) has navigated moral discourses in science and technology, in particularly in relation to the human body, and has adopted three international declarations, on human genomics and genetics and on bioethics. Based on fieldwork in Kenya, South Africa and at UNESCO headquarters in Paris, Adèle Langlois will ‘lift the lid’ on the drafting process behind these declarations – the power imbalances, the compromises and the breakthroughs. She will also show how the declarations have influenced research ethics at national level.

 

Adèle Langlois is a senior lecturer at the University of Lincoln.
Her book, Negotiating Bioethics, was published by Routledge in 2013.
