Update of European bioethics: basic ethical principles in European bioethics and biolaw

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articlepeer-review

Abstract

This paper presents an update of the research on European bioethics undertaken by the author together with Professor Peter Kemp since the 1990s, on Basic ethical principles in European bioethics and biolaw. In this European approach to basic ethical principles in bioethics and biolaw, the principles of autonomy, dignity, integrity and vulnerability are proposed as the most important ethical principles for respect for the human person in biomedical and biotechnological development. This approach to bioethics and biolaw is presented here in a short updated version that integrates the earlier research in a presentation of the present understanding of the basic ethical principles in bioethics and biolaw.
