Title: Protecting Genetic Information: A Comparison of Normative Approaches
Authors: Kosseim, Patricia
Letendre, Martin
Knoppers, Bartha Maria
Issue Date: 2004
Publisher: GenEdit
Abstract: The increasing use of genetic information has emerged as an important concern worldwide as scientific and technological advances continue to advance at lightening speed and as governments struggle to develop appropriate policy frameworks. While most countries clearly recognize that genetic information warrants some form of privacy protection, the underlying rationale for providing that protection and the approach which is ultimately adopted vary significantly across the board. As a result, a medley of laws, policy statements and guidelines currently exist to protect genetic information, each with its inherent assumptions, concepts and terminology.
