The course will discuss ethical principles of UNESCO’s Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights; each lesson focuses on one of the principles of the Declaration. Real dilemmas are discussed including ethical dilemmas during the COVID-19 epidemic. Students will be asked to explore real cases and articles dealing with bioethics, according to the principles of bioethics. Actual solutions are discussed. The course includes interviews with world leaders of bioethical research. Grades are given to answers, where indicated in the syllabus below, at the end of each week: the students are asked to assign a principle (or more than one) of the UNESCO declaration to bioethical dilemmas. They are required to participate in discussion forums. There is no final test or thesis. Welcome! We are looking forward to seeing you. It is possible to join the course until April 15. Participants must answer the questions from previous lessons in order to get credit.
