Centre for Research Ethics & Bioethics (CRB)

Want to discuss ethics?

Do you like discussing ethics? Here is an opportunity! We run an ethics blog in English and another in Swedish

The majority of the blog content deals with the research that is conducted at CRB. Blog posts are often often about biobanks and health care. But that is not all: we write about everything from neurophilosophy to genetic risk information.

The Swedish blog covers more of the current national debate while its English sister is more geared towards the bioethics research community.

Pär Segerdahl is editor of both blogs and they are run together with BBMRI.se. He invites you to have a look, a read and a bit of dialogue with us at Etikbloggen and the Ethics Blog.

If you don't like reading blogs

Thinking about ethicsPerhaps social media isn't for you. In that case, we have carefully selected blog posts and created books for you to read at your own convenience.

Why would a cancer patient agree to test a drug that might not be effective on their own disease? And are researchers responsible if their research can be used to develop biological weapons? This collection of texts might not provide the answers, but at least give you some food for thought.

Pär Segerdahl invites you on a journey through some of the issues that the Ethics Blog has dealt with in the recent years. He writes about researchers’ responsibilities, about participating in research and about information and integrity. But he also writes about ethics as such: What is it today, really? In this book you can read about data protection and population based biobank studies. But you can also read about apes writing articles and about the risk with knowing the risk.

This book contains a collection of Pär Segerdahl's posts from the Ethics Blog (ISBN: 978-91-506-2433-5). There is also a Swedish version.
