The Institute, operating the UNESCO Chair in Bioethics and Human Rights, offers a university framework of reflection and study, providing information and fostering the application of bioethical principles in the fields of science, medicine and new technologies based on the UNESCO Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights.
Our Institute encourages a wide exchange of ideas and experiences among scholars, professionals, religious and lay people through dialogue among international institutions of higher education especially with developing countries: we intend to hold two major events involving European and International leaders in the field of bioethics with the aim of addressing the following two topics of uttermost priority in their agendas.
The economic crisis in Europe has placed solidarity at the top of public and political agendas, making it increasingly important to provide a systematic and solution oriented knowledge base on European solidarity in times of crisis. In order to improve and reinforce solidarity within the current dramatic situation of the refugees and immigrants, we want to organize a public forum with policy makers, scholars, and persons invested in immigration/refugee affairs. The debate will discuss EU resolutions,
highlighting and assessing solidarity procedures and mechanisms, and suggesting new policies and actions, helping citizens to understand the crisis and to promote solidarity among EU citizens and States.
Total Cost: € 21.000, covering realization costs as well as travel and accommodation for key-note speakers.
