Conference Description:

A Conference on Applied and Medical Ethics
Global trends in population aging are clear: Population aging anticipated over the next fifty years has been described as unprecedented, pervasive, enduring, and with profound implications for many facets of human life. Our attitudes towards the aging and their social and medical care raise profound questions of ethics and social justice. Particular questions concerning moral and ethical aspects of health care as well as general questions that belong to bioethics or even meta-ethics are to be asked and may be even answered. This occasion may be the right one for these experts to tell us what they think.
