Ethics of Science in Africa

Ethics of Science in Africa:
A Youth Forum on the ethical and social responsibilities of scientists in Africa is also planned, in order to involve young researchers or representatives of youth organizations in the work of COMEST.

Finally, a Regional Ministerial Meeting on the incorporation of ethics of science and technology in African public policies will also take place in order to assure visibility and political support to the debate of this matter in the West Africa region.

This is a great idea and a good program. The issues of ethical research always pops up on my agenda… I think we need to be very careful about the way we imagine the relationships between ethics and the power dynamics of the developing/developed world.
