Project description

The project will analyse which positions are developed in China concerning stem cell reserach, medically assisted reproduction and medical research. This will be done by looking at the academic ethical literature, together with the guidelines issued by official inistitutes and professional organisations in China. The comparison with Western convictions and interpretation within the specific culture should help to gain greater insight into Chinese positions.
