Research
New issues in ethics of science and technology have been studied by examining the literature. Special attention has been given to ethical issues that are particularly relevant for developing countries. Ethical assessments have been made of existing technologies; also the need to develop inexpensive, creative and effective technologies addressing the relevant needs of developing countries has been analysed. Finally new and emerging technologies are examined in order to determine the potential for international action (e.g. nano-technology, genetically modified organism). Publications have appeared in the International Journal of Technology Assessment in Health Care and The Hastings Center Report.
