Description - Comparative Biomedical Policy by Ivar A. Bleiklie
Comparative Biomedical Policy presents the first comprehensive and systematic cross-national analysis of assisted reproductive technologies (ART) policy. Based on original and detailed research, the authors collected here discuss the policy implications of the interaction of advanced technology, ethics and democratic policy-making. The high-profile ART policy issue has captured the attention of scientists, ethicists, social scientists, policy-makers, the media and the public. This up-to-date volume establishes a knowledge base for understanding debates on topics such as embryonic stem cell research and human and therapeutic cloning as well as how access is regulated. Containing case studies of Belgium, Italy, Canada, the US, Spain, the UK, France, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland and Norway, the book explains how, and why, policy-makers within a country designed ART policy the way they did.
