Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the articles of the Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights adopted by the General Conference of UNESCO held on 19 October 2005 in Paris. Ethical issues raised by the rapid advances in science and their technological applications should be examined with due respect to the dignity of the human person and universal respect for, and observance of, human rights and fundamental freedoms. There is a need of developing new approaches to social responsibility to ensure that progress in science and technology contributes to justice, equity and to the interest of humanity. Unethical scientific and technological conduct has had a particular impact on indigenous and local communities. The development of international rules is one of the main functions of UNESCO. The original text of the chapter is in French.
