Military Medical Ethics Workshop

Invitation to the 4th Workshop on Military Medical Ethics of the International Committee of Military Medicine (ICMM)

For the fourth time, the ICMM Reference Centre for Education in IHL and Ethics together with the Medical Services Directorate of the Swiss Armed Forces and the Center for Ethics of Zurich University organise their annual Workshop on Military Medical Ethics. The main topics for the 2014 workshop are resource allocation, disaster bioethics, and e-learning in military medical ethics and IHL.

The idea of this workshop series is to bring experts and interested people from the relevant academic disciplines and the practice together and to offer a neutral, international platform to discuss medical ethical dilemmas that are encountered by medical troops and humanitarian forces in deployment. Switzerland with its tradition of neutrality and support of Humanitarian Law is very pleased to offer a workshop where specialists in Law of Armed Conflict, military medical professionals, philosophers and members of the ICRC are meeting to analyse, discuss and deliberate various ethical dilemmas of military medicine.

The results of the workshop are being published in annual proceedings.

We invite all interested people and specialists from the fields of Ethics, International Law, and the Military to participate in this workshop, which is taking place at the shores of the beautiful lake “Bodensee”, near Zurich
from April 24th to April 26th 2014. You will find the workshop programme and the application form on our website http://melac.ch/courses-workshops/ethics-workshop/2014-lilienberg
