Call: Bioethics Challenges in Times of War – Call for Abstracts
According to data from the Uppsala Conflict Data Program and the Oslo Peace Research Institute, there were at least 56 active armed conflicts in 2020, which have cost the lives of at least 50,000 people in that year. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees estimates that 82.4 million persons have been forcibly displaced in 2020 (of whom 35 million were children), and that this number has again risen since then.
For a special issue on “Bioethics Challenges in Times of War”, we invite research articles (of up to 6,000 words) and case studies (of up to 3,000 words) which discuss ethical and human rights challenges faced by healthcare providers and policymakers in a context or as a consequence of armed conflict (e.g., forced displacement).
