    Inclusive and Relevant Language: The Use of the Concepts of Autonomy, Dignity and Vulnerability in Different Contexts. [REVIEW]Hans Morten Haugen - 2010 - Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy 13 (3):203-213.
    The article analyses the three terms autonomy, dignity and vulnerability. The relevance and practical application of the terms is tested in two spheres. First, as guiding principles in the area of ethics of medicines and science. Second, as human rights principles, serving to guide the conduct of public policies for an effective realization of human rights. The article argues that all human beings have the same dignity, but that the autonomy—and therefore vulnerability—differs considerably. Simply said, with reduced autonomy comes increased (...)

    Peoples’ Right to Self-Determination and Self-Governance Over Natural Resources: Possible and Desirable?Hans Morten Haugen - 2013 - Etikk I Praksis - Nordic Journal of Applied Ethics 1 (1):3-21.
    he article combines Elinor Ostrom’s design principles for common-pool resources and human rights provisions, including subsequent clarifications and jurisprudence. It analyses whether stronger local self-governance, embedded in the natural resource dimension of peoples’ rights to self-determination is a recommendable approach. Two changes in understanding are noted. First, the universal approval of indigenous peoples’ right to self-determination as specified in the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. Second, the wide endorsement of the specific principle of free and prior informed (...)

    Human Rights in Natural Science and Technology Professions’ Codes of Ethics?Hans Morten Haugen - 2013 - Business and Professional Ethics Journal 32 (1-2):49-76.
    No global professional codes for the natural science and technology professions exist. In light of how the application of new technology can affect individuals and communities, this discrepancy warrants greater scrutiny. This article analyzes the most relevant processes and seeks to explain why these processes have not resulted in global codes. Moreover, based on a human rights approach, the article gives recommendations on the future process and content of codes for science and technology professions. The relevance of human rights in (...)

  4. Technology and Human Rights, Friends or Foes?: Highlighting Innovations Applying to Natural Resources and Medicine.Hans Morten Haugen - 2012 - Rol.
    Hans Morten Haugen offers an analysis of the intersection of intellectual property with health, traditional knowledge and biodiversity against a backdrop of established and emerging human rights. How those rights interface and who decides are among the most difficult issues in international intellectual property, and there is no doubt that there is room for fresh ideas on how to simultaneously achieve the goals of innovation, development and access. 0Also part of series: Library of Human Rights; 2.

    Midas’ Gift Means Death: Tax Dodging is the Biggest Obstacle for Global Justice.Hans Morten Haugen - 2014 - Etikk I Praksis - Nordic Journal of Applied Ethics 1:43-60.
    Tax havens and tax secrecy have risen to the top of the global policy agenda and may constitute the most important impediment for reducing inequalities. Moreover, complex corporate structures allow charging for services undertaken in various countries through one low-tax country. Transferring profits to low-tax jurisdictions will significantly reduce a multinational corporation’s overall tax burden. Individuals are assisted in opening shell corporations that officially own bank accounts where the real owner is not revealed. Reducing this practice of tax dodging has (...)

    Kampen Om Matfatet Og Matproduksjonen.Hans Morten Haugen - 2013 - Etikk I Praksis - Nordic Journal of Applied Ethics 1 (1):55-72.
    Antallet sultne i verden har økt, selv om det kan diskuteres om det i dag er en høyere eller lavere andel som lider under sult enn for seks år siden – før matprisøkningen. Alle er uansett enige om at det samlet sett produseres nok mat i verden til at alle kan få dekket sine ernæringsbehov. Artikkelen viser at to hovedretninger i debatten om matproduksjon står mot hverandre. Den dominerende retningen fokuserer primært på matsikkerhet, forstått som økt matproduksjon og økt handel (...)
