Töötuba "Issues in Bioethics and Philosophy of Medicine"
Nordic-Baltic Network of Philosophy of Medicine
Issues in Bioethics and Philosophy of Medicine
University of Tartu (Estonia), June 11-12th, 2019
The Nordic-Baltic Network of Philosophy of Medicine was created in 2008 to bring together researchers working in the Nordic-Baltic region on various areas related to this broad field of philosophy of medicine and health care. In each subsequent year, the network has held conferences and workshops in Sweden, Finland, Iceland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, and Denmark. We are proud to always have had a genuinely interdisciplinary event with medical doctors, philosophers and social scientists presenting side by side.
The motivations behind having a network for this specific geographic region are many. One reason is that philosophy of medicine and bioethics debates tend to be driven by North American interests and problems specific to North American healthcare systems. However, the Nordic-Baltic countries bring with them distinct issues that arise due to somewhat similar welfare states and the shared recent problems.
We invite all scholars working in this field to give presentations addressing topics of their own choice within the philosophy of medicine/medical ethics/bioethics. Post-graduate students who would like feedback in a friendly and informal atmosphere are most welcome. We will start on the morning of Tuesday June 11th and end in the afternoon of Wednesday June 12th, 2019.
The workshop is free of charge and we can offer help in locating affordable accomodation for postgraduate students.
