Frontiers of Informed Consent
3rd Annual Workshop in Applied Ethics
Informed, autonomous consent is widely considered to be central to
the ethics of human subjects research. However, it remains both
conceptually and practically underspecified. A conceptually clear
account of informed consent that is appropriate to the broad array of
human subjects research, from medical to social science, has been
elusive. Moreover, it has proven to be difficult to operationalize
informed consent in practice. These challenges to the ethics of informed consent have been compounded by the globalization of research and rapid technological developments.
This interdisciplinary workshop will bring together practitioners and
theorists at the leading edge of the ethics of informed consent to
share their research and discuss the future of informed consent. The
workshop is designed to be highly interactive, and to provide speakers with constructive feedback from colleagues working on related issues.
