A Small Bioethical World?
Berry, Roberta M
HEC forum : an interdisciplinary journal on hospitals' ethical and legal issues 2011 Mar; 23(1): 1-14
This essay discusses four challenges posed to a global bioethics by articles on: divergent national policies on compensation of egg donors for IVF, efforts to advance the development of international guidelines for the management of neonates on the edge of viability, bioethics training workshops in Uganda, a bioethicist's reflection on a visit to Pakistan. The article then discusses several approaches to developing a global bioethics and how these approaches might meet the four challenges. The essay concludes with discussion of the author's development of a "navigational approach" to policymaking for "fractious" bioethical policy problems and how this compares to other approaches to developing a global bioethics.
