Developing Models for Implementation of UNESCO Bioethical Instruments

April, 2008 to December, 2008

Center for Ethics and Law in Biomedicine (CELAB) received a UNESCO grant for developing models for implementation of UNESCO Bioethical Instruments. With this project, CELAB sought to contribute to the increasing international awareness of the existence of these UNESCO declarations. We believe that reflections on and interpretations of these documents should be an integral part of ethics education, policymaking, national legislation and international research and that translating these documents into the official languages of the Member States is one of the best ways to spread the idea of bioethical thinking and disseminate the results of policy-making at UNESCO.
