UNESCO Chair Director Alberto García Gómez contributed to the recent work on Bioethical Responsibility in Businesses and Institutions (La responsabilidad bioética en las empresas e instituciones). García coauthored the article, “The Bioethically Responsible Business” with Radek Tadeusz Biernacki, Professor of Economics at the Universidad Finis Terrae in Santiago de Chile. The authors explain how bioethical reflection at the start of the 21st century has given increasing importance to the social consequences of the biotechnical revolution. Hence, in addition to the traditional fields of clinical ethics and research ethics dealing with the ethical behavior of the individual, contemporary bioethics has been occupied with questions of global bioethics at the local, national, and international levels.
Since its 2009 foundation, the UNESCO Chair in Bioethics and Human Rights has worked to foster the art of convergence and cooperation in global ethics. It continues to gather a forum of diverse bioethics thought leaders to assess the complex challenges of bioethics from an interdisciplinary perspective.
