‘Paternalism and Public Health’
Sept 2021, London
The first workshop will address overarching questions and methodological approaches. One important issue concerns the relationship between public health ethics – which focuses on populations and the ‘common good’ – and bioethics more generally – which typically evaluates interactions between health-workers and particular individuals.
