De l’incompatibilité de la carrière des juges et la pratique de la résolution extrajudiciaire des litiges, cas de l’Arbitrage au Rwanda
The issue of Medical Liability in Europe has been intensively discussed since a long time, and it needs revision to come to a harmonisation. In June 2008, the Council of Europe’s Public and Private Law Unit (DG-HL Directorate General of Human Rights and Legal Affairs), in co-operation with the Health and Bioethics Divisions (DGIII - Social Cohesion), has organised a 2-day interdisciplinary Conference on “The ever-growing challenge of medical liability: national and European responses”. As stated, the aim of the Conference was to gather information, share experiences and examine ways of improving standards of dealing with medical liability in the member states. It is very important to show good practices in the field which simultaneously secure the individual’s access to the judiciary while ensuring just compensation for any medical malpractice were examined.
The collection of five given papers and presentations from conferences between 2005 and 2008 are discussion papers. The perspectives of the essays are based on biomedical ethics and legal reflections. The papers were presented on important international conferences and congresses. Included are the following talks: “Biotechnology and Economy: An ethical conflict of interest?”; “Human Biobanks -- Trustees and aspects of the current German discussion”; Biobanking and genetic testing: A comparison between European countries and India, “New Epidemics: A chance for Social rights, Justice and Health?” and “Genetic testing, pharmacogenetics, privacy and the responsibility of doctors in clinical trials”. The author hopes that this collection will stimulate further discussion
