New cooperation partners as of 2019 will include the University of Novi Sad (Serbia), Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina) as well as Tirana (Albania).

Short Description of the Summer Schools

Central questions of medical ethics and bioethics, such as autonomy, human rights, life and will, will be discussed in the course of the summer schools from a "practicable" perspective. Within the project, thematic focus areas will be reflected upon from a multinational as well as interdiscplinary perspective. Diverging cultures of the different involved disciplines will be taken into account as well as different cultural and juridical perspectives on those issues. The horizon of this project is the idea of "Integrative Bioethics". The intensive program "Summer School - Bioethics in Context" addresses questions beyond the academic discourse and also takes into account the reflexion of political decision making processes in the field of bioethics.
