    Glocalization of Bioethics.Himani Bhakuni - 2022 - Global Bioethics 33 (1):65-77.
    There appears to be a conflict between global bioethical principles and the local understanding and application of these principles, but this conflict has misleadingly been characterized through the east–west dichotomy. This dichotomy portrays bioethical principles as western and as alien to non-western cultures. In this paper, I present reasons to reject the east–west dichotomy. Using the discussion around the principle of informed consent as an example, I propose that while bioethical values are common, bioethical governance must display a certain flexibility (...)

    A New Definition for Global Bioethics: COVID-19, a Case Study.Ruth Macklin - 2022 - Global Bioethics 33 (1):4-13.
    A truly global bioethics involves cooperation and collaboration among countries. Most of the articles published in bioethics journals address a problem that exists in one or more countries, but the articles typically do not discuss solutions that require collaboration or cooperation. COVAX is one example of proposed international cooperation related to the current COVID-19. pandemic. Yet it is evident that nations have been proceeding on their own with little, if any collaboration. Despite international research ethics guidance from the World Health (...)

    Bioethics, Globalization and Pandemics.Gustavo Ortiz-Millán - 2022 - Global Bioethics 33 (1):32-37.
    Bioethics should pay more attention to globalization and some of its consequences than it has done so far. The COVID-19 pandemic would not have been possible without globalization, which has also increased some of its negative consequences. Globalization has intensified wildlife trade in the world. One of the main hypotheses about the origin of this pandemic is that it originated in illegal forms of wildlife trade in China. In the last 30 or 40 years, there have been zoonotic outbreaks at (...)

  7. Sustainable Biobanks: A Case Study for a Green Global Bioethics.G. Samuel, F. Lucivero & A. M. Lucassen - 2022 - Global Bioethics 33 (1):50-64.
    This paper argues that as we move to redefine global bioethics, there is a need to be attentive to the ethical issues associated with the environmental sustainability of data and digital infrastructures in global health systems. We show that these infrastructures have thus far featured little in environmental impact discussions in the context of health, and we use a case study approach of biobanking to illustrate this. We argue that this missing discussion is problematic because biobanks have environmental impacts associated (...)

    The Challenges of Global Bioethics.Henk ten Have - 2022 - Global Bioethics 33 (1):41-44.
    The Covid-19 pandemic is associated with an increase in ethics publications and an upsurge of interest in global bioethics. This commentary argues that global bioethics is broader than international bioethics, as defined by Macklin, because the nature of moral problems is determined by processes and practices of globalization, and because a broader theoretical perspective is required. Such perspective acknowledges the connectedness and relationality of human beings, as assumed in the care-based feminist bioethics defended by Tong. The commentary finally claims that (...)

    Towards a Feminist Global Ethics.Rosemarie Tong - 2022 - Global Bioethics 33 (1):14-31.
    In this article, I explain what makes a global bioethics “feminist” and why I think this development makes a better bioethics. Before defending this assertion explicitly, I engage in some preliminary work. First, I attempt to define global bioethics, showing why the so-called feminist sameness-difference debate [are men and women fundamentally the same or fundamentally different?] is of relevance to this attempt. I then discuss the difference between rights-based feminist approaches to global bioethics and care-based feminist approaches to global bioethics. (...)
