Forthcoming Events at the Centre for Philosophy, Justice and Health
KCL / UCL Joint Bioethics Colloquium
KCL and UCL have a substantial number of faculty and PhD students working in bioethics, broadly construed. This colloquium aims to facilitate high-level discussion among these scholars and link individuals and groups across KCL, UCL, and beyond.
Topics range from traditional questions
in medical ethics and law to ethical issues in the design of health
systems at the national and global level (public health ethics /
global health ethics).
The colloquium meets on the first Thursday of the month, 4:00 – 5:30 pm, with the possibility to go for drinks afterwards. Two sessions per term, starting in the fall of 2013, alternating between KCL and UCL.

Social Values and Health Priority Setting
Fridays 12.00-2.00, during term time. Seminar Room, School of Public Policy,
The Rubin Building, 29/30 Tavistock Square.
This seminar examines the
catalogue of Case
Studies produced by the ongoing Social
Values and Health Priority Setting project. This project compares
the decisions made about resource allocation in health care by
different countries, and explores the differing social values that
shape those choices. A different case
study will be examined each week. If you are interested in attending, please contact Benedict Rumbold.
