Religion and global bioethics: Religious global bioethics as a precursor to a universal bioethics.
From a general public perspective, this article presumes that there is such a thing as a universal ethics; however this assumption does not decrease the challenges with regard to a 'global ethics' and 'bioethics'. The article discusses the views on global religious bioethics that were formulated in 1999. The article further considers these formulations as the forerunner of UNESCO's perspective on universal bioethics accepted in 2005. The article aims to argue that a global value system will enhance hope of peace and justice in today's global world. It argues that the absence of shared ethics will reinforce conflict between civilisations and worsen injustice.
