Ethics and Security Aspects of Infectious Disease Control: Interdisciplinary Perspectives
Foyalty 375

Ethics and Security Aspects of Infectious Disease Control: Interdisciplinary Perspectives (Hardback)

£125.00
Usually despatched within 3 weeks.

Synopsis

The increasing emergence, re-emergence, and spread of deadly infectious diseases which pose health, economic, security and ethical challenges for states and people around the world, has given rise to an important global debate. The actual or potential burden of infectious diseases is sometimes so great that governments treat them as threats to national security. However, such treatment potentially increases the risk that emergency disease-control measures will be ineffective, counterproductive and/or unjust. Research on ethical issues associated with infectious disease is a relatively new and rapidly growing area of academic inquiry, as is research on infectious diseases within the field of security studies. This volume incorporates ethical and security perspectives, thus furthering research in both fields. Its unique focus on the intersection of ethical and security dimensions will, furthermore, generate fresh insights on how governments should respond to infectious disease challenges. Readers should include professionals and scholars working in infectious disease, epidemiology, public health, health law, health economics, public policy, bioethics, medical humanities, health and human rights, social/political philosophy, security studies, and international politics.

Michael J. Selgelid is Associate Professor and Director of the Centre for Human Bioethics, Monash University, Australia. Christian Enemark is Reader in Global Health and International Politics at Aberystwyth University, UK.
