Tsukuba Bioethics Roundtable

Last week I was in Tsukuba, and gave a talk on the history of "bioethics." We don't know when and how "bioethics" began in each country, so I proposed a comparative study of the history of bioethics around the world. After my talk, several participants came to me and encouraged me to gather information from around the world using a website and email.

I made a special page for this purpose,
Comparative Study of the History of Bioethics. If you are interested in this topic, please visit this page and give us some information about your country or region. We have a number of resources on the history of bioethics in the USA, but not so many about that of Asian, Islamic, African, Australian,...etc. countries. In addition, I suppose the concept of "bioethics" would be different from country to country. Please join this study.

What's New:
Special Report 3: Bioethics around the World.
