Disaster Bioethics


Dr. Henk ten Have

The world is suffering from an increasing number of disasters: the 2004 Tsunami in the Indian Ocean, the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, the 2011 earthquake/tsunami in Japan, and the 2014 Ebola epidemic. These disasters all lead to an unprecedented wave of generosity and humanitarian aid. They also raise questions about international solidarity and global governance. This research project aims to examine the ethical dimensions of disaster relief and humanitarian aid.
