Moving Life Science Ethics Debates Beyond National Borders: Some Empirical Observations

Louise Bezuidenhout
2013 Science and Engineering Ethics  
The life sciences are increasingly being called on to produce "socially robust" knowledge that honors the social contract between science and society.  ...  To illustrate this, the paper offers some empirical fieldwork data that considers how the concept of dual-use (as a broad social issue) was discussed within African and UK laboratories.  ...  Acknowledgments Many thanks to Prof Brian Rappert at the University of Exeter for his comments on this manuscript. The fieldwork presented at this paper was sponsored by the Welcome Trust.  ...
