Thirteenth Session (Paris, 2006)

The thirteenth session of the International Bioethics Committee (IBC) will be held at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, from 20 to 22 November 2006. The thirteenth session will be opened by the Director-General of UNESCO.

At its last session in 2005, IBC defined its work programme for 2006-2007 and decided to focus on two principles set forth in the Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights – one on consent (Articles 6 and 7) and the other on social responsibility and health (Article 14) – and to this end to set up two working groups.  The thirteenth session will be the occasion for IBC in its entirety to examine the preliminary reports on each subject.
