The World Commission is meeting on 26 and 27 april in Brussels to review its policy recommendations of 2007.
Some suggestions so far are:
Systematic review of national and regional debates on comparative basis and look for common ground at global level
Further development of ethical guidelines
Traditional distinctions between bioethics and ethics of emerging technologies is artificial. It is necessary to bring these realms together on focus on issues, rather than on disciplines.
the question is also whether UNESCO should stick to nanotechnology or broaden to converging technologies or emerging technologies
