Wittenberg Bioethics Colloquium
Evangelische Akademie Sachsen-Anhalt
The aim of this society is to discuss bioethical issues from multidisciplinary perspectives with a special emphasis on science and religion. A team of experts in the sciences and humanities from the Protestant Academy of Saxony-Anhalt, the Center for Medicine, Ethics and Law, and Martin-Luther-University-Halle-Wittenberg join together to work on collaborative projects, with the aim of producing unique works for presentation through free public seminar and discussion forums, public conferences, and publications. Mainly concerned with the life sciences of biology, genetics, neuroscience, and medicine, the society explores contemporary research and questions of ethics through the lens of Christian faith. Inviting participation from members of academic and professional communities in the human sciences, philosophy, theology, jurisprudence, economics, politics, NGOs, and pastoral care for expert input, the society works to establish comprehensive networks for dissemination from a distinctive Eastern German context.
