    Normative Foundations of Technology Transfer and Transnational Benefit Principles in the UNESCO Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights.Thomas Alured Faunce & Hitoshi Nasu - 2009 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 34 (3):296-321.
    The United Nations Scientific, Education and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights (UDBHR) expresses in its title and substance a controversial linkage of two normative systems: international human rights law and bioethics. The UDBHR has the status of what is known as a ‘non-binding’ declaration under public international law. The UDBHR’s normative foundation within bioethics (and association, for example, with virtue-based or principlist bioethical theories) is more problematic.

    Sunscreen safety: The precautionary principle, the australian therapeutic goods administration and nanoparticles in sunscreens. [REVIEW]Thomas Faunce, Katherine Murray, Hitoshi Nasu & Diana Bowman - 2008 - NanoEthics 2 (3):231-240.
    The ‘Precautionary Principle’ provides a somewhat ill-defined guide, often of uncertain normative status, for those exercising administrative decision-making power in circumstances where that may create potential risks to human health or the environment.
