Title:
Ethical Challenges in Global Health Research, Practice and Education:  The Question of Moral Imperialism
Time: 11:30am
Location: Center for Ethics Commons 102
Synopsis:
The growth of Global Health programs in U.S. universities has dramatically increased the need for attention to the ethical dimensions of international practice, education, and research in health care, particularly with regard to work in developing countries.  A central tenet of contemporary ethical guidelines for international work is that sponsors from upper-income countries have an obligation to help developing countries build infrastructure for local administrative control.  Such local control ideally includes priority setting, oversight of international programs, and ethical review of externally-sponsored research.

September 12 -14: Atlanta Neurolaw Conference
Title:
NEURO-INTERVENTIONS AND THE LAW: Regulating Human Mental Capacity
Location: Georgia State Studebt Center
Synopsis: Modern neuro-interventions hold out the promise of non-invasively but directly, effectively, efficiently, and maybe even permanently altering people’s mental capacities, and this conference will interrogate a range of pertinent questions that this might raise for the law. For instance, how should society regulate the use of such diverse neuro-interventions? What may we legitimately expect of people whose mental capacities have been altered through such neuro-interventions? How should the criminal justice system be permitted to use such techniques to regulate people’s mental capacities to promote or to achieve its own internal aims? How are these techniques currently being used and regulated? Which of these techniques actually work, how do they work, what are their various costs, do they truly help us to achieve what we think or hope they do, and in general what can we learn about our own normative presuppositions by reflecting on neuro-interventions in such contexts?
