This competition challenges students to explore the WAML World Congress themes of A Human Rights Based Approach to Health, Law and Ethics - through new visions for the future. We invite participants to select a theme that puts health law issues in human rights perspective and to develop ideas which investigate, interrogate, and propose sustainable options for the future. The paper proposals should also reveal something about the social, cultural, economic and/or political conditions related to the place a student is coming from.
Some examples of specific topics that might be explored through the submissions include:
Reprodictive technology and genetics
End of life decisions
Jury: 3 to 5 members from WAML
Instructions for student papers are the same as for the FULL PAPER GUIDELINES.
