The Erasmus Observatory on Health Law / Institute of Health Policy & Management (Erasmus University Rotterdam) announces the international conference "1997-2017: 20 years after the Oviedo Convention on Human Rights and Biomedicine: What are the achieved gains and its potential?" in Nicosia, Cyprus.

The Convention on Human Rights and Biomedicine (commonly referred to as the Oviedo Convention) defines a general framework for the protection of fundamental rights and freedoms with regards to the applications of biology and medicine.

It lays down a series of principles and prohibitions concerning bioethics, medical research, consent, rights to private life and information, organ transplantation, genetics, etc. 20 years after the opening, academics and professionals from different perspectives (law, medicine, ethics, sociology, and economics) will meet, discussing the main and latest developments in Biomedicine during a two-day conference from 8-9 December 2017.
