Oxford Global Health and Bioethics International Conference 2019 @ Keble College, Oxford
Jul 1 – Jul 2 all-day

The Wellcome Centre for Ethics and Humanities and the Ethox Centre are pleased to announce the call for papers for the third biennial Oxford Global Health and Bioethics International Conference. The conference will take place on the 1st and 2nd  of July 2019 at Keble College, University of Oxford.

Conference Focus

The ethical issues involved in the practice of Global Health initiatives and research are increasingly the subject of public and scholarly debate. These discussions have, however, tended to be dominated by a focus on particular diseases or interventions in certain locations and often with specific views of what constitutes ethics. Debate has also tended to be limited by insufficient engagement between different disciplinary approaches to this subject.

The Oxford Global Health and Bioethics International Conference takes place every two years and addresses critically important ethical issues in the conception and implementation of Global Health.  It aims to foster comprehensive multi-disciplinary debate moving beyond the parameters of disease, interventions and locations to attend to and engage with the many over-arching ethical concerns which characterise Global Health policy, practice and research.

33rd European Conference on Philosophy of Medicine and Healthcare: Philosophy and Ethics at the Edge of Medicine @ University of Oslo, Norway
Aug 7 – Aug 10 all-day

This conference will be organised by the European Society for Philosophy of Medicine and Healthcare and the Centre for Medical Ethics, the Faculty of Medicine, University of Oslo. We may think we know what the terms ‘medicine’ and ‘health care’ denote and what activities should be classed as falling under each of them. Yet both medicine and health care have fuzzy borders in themselves and also overlap with other areas of human activity, e.g. in relation to the legal system or the cosmetic industry. This raises philosophical questions about how we should understand activities that are ‘at the edge of medicine’ and ethical questions about how we should evaluate such activities. Should the ethics of medicine supply the guiding principles or should activities at the edge be governed by other considerations. These and similar questions will be explored and addressed in the conference.
