The 11th Postgraduate Bioethics Conference, hosted by the Ethox Centre, will take place on 4-5th September 2017 in St Catherine’s College, Oxford.

The theme this year will be ‘Individuals and Populations’. Through this theme delegates and speakers will explore a  range  of  bioethics  questions  at  the  individual  level,  the  population level,  and  intersecting  issues. Although  traditionally  oriented  towards  the  individual,  bioethics  is  starting  to  recognise the   ethical   significance   of   the   population   in   the   context   of   globalisation, technological advances, and ‘big data’. Populations may be considered at the community, national or global level.

We welcome delegates from diverse disciplinary backgrounds (e.g.    bioethics,    law,    social    science,    psychiatry, philosophy, and medicine). Delegates should be enrolled on graduate programmes at national or international educational institutions.

Please save 4-5th September in your diaries.  Add conference calendar (iCal format). For information on registration and submission of abstract and bursary applications please visit the registration page.
