‘Paternalism and Public Health’
14–15 Sept 2021, Online
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.
The workshop will feature speaker presentations as well as a roundtable discussion focussing on the Nanny State report, authored by John Coggon in partnership with the UK Faculty of Public Health. Participants are asked to read the report beforehand.
Attendance is free, but spaces are limited. To express your interest in attending, please email email@example.com
