16th International Conference on Clinical Ethics Consultation (ICCEC)

Spire Estate, Stellenbosch, Cape Town, South Africa

Theme: Beyond Borders: exploring new frontiers

The Centre for Medical Ethics and Law, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Stellenbosch University, is delighted to host the 16th Annual International Conference on Clinical Ethics and Consultation (ICCEC) in Cape Town, South Africa.

Given that this is the first time that the ICCEC will be hosted on the African continent, the theme "Beyond Borders: exploring new frontiers" is apt.

The conference will explore clinical ethics challenges that traverse borders and shift paradigms against a backdrop of cultural complexity and diversity.

We hope that the ethical challenges raised by the theme will be of interest to health care professionals and scholars, bioethicists, legal scholars, policy makers and health science partners from around the world. We look forward to sharing ideas and contributing new and diverse perspectives on clinical ethics that will help us to step beyond our boundaries of comfort to experience different philosophical systems that influence decision making in clinical ethics in different parts of the world.

This is particularly relevant as geographical borders become more porous and migration patterns bring cultural diversity and ethical challenges to various corners of the globe. For more information visit:
