13th World Congress of Bioethics held in Edinburgh

The International Association of Bioethics (IAB) conference was chaired by Professor Graeme Laurie

The World Congress of Bioethics was held from the 14th to the 17th of June in Edinburgh. The IAB Congress was organised by staff from Edinburgh Law School's Mason Institute and brought together global thought-leaders in the field. Researchers, professionals and students joined together to seek enlightenment on issues of peace, health, environment and technology.

This year's Congress featured an Arts and Ethics stream for the first time, exploring the relationship between bioethics and the arts. This stream included oral and poster presentations, symposia, performances, film presentations and a curated gallery from around the world.
