Ethics around the World: format of the conferences  
Ethics around the World: format of the conferences
Generally, the conference will be organized on a one-day basis. The basic idea is that every conference has a similar format with the same programme during the morning session and a variable programme during the afternoon session, and possibly the following morning session.
The variable programme will be adapted to the local needs and requirements. It will be discussed with the interested parties, how the programme can be made as attractive as possible within the country, involving experts, professionals, policy makers and other relevant groups in the country.

Given the approved activities of the ethics programme of UNESCO, several options for the programme can be offered.
  1. The conference can be an opportunity to discuss ways and means of implementing the international instruments and their incorporation into practices and national legislation.

  2. The focus can be on introducing, expanding and improving ethics teaching programmes.

  3. Discussion can elaborate the ways and means of establishing National Bioethics Committees or reinforcing the activities of existing committees. (Assisting Bioethics Committees Project)

  4. The rotating conference can also be a means of promoting public debate on ethical issues and involving various stakeholders, organisations and groups of individuals in the debate.

When the conference has been concluded, a draft report will be made. After approval this report will be accessible on this website.
