Moral and Ethical Issues in Human Genome Editing coverbook Home-Grown Solutions: Legacy to Generations in Africa, Vol.1 cover book Home-Grown Solutions: Legacy to Generations in Africa, Vol. 2
Moral and Ethical Issues in Human Genome Editing
This in-depth report takes a wider perspective on the issue of human genome editing, which concerns all people as individuals and collectively as a society. It challenges the alleged achievement in China as being profoundly unethical, reflecting a disregard for the ethical and professional concerns of the international scientific community.
Home-Grown Solutions: Legacy to Generations in Africa, Vol.1
This is the first of two volumes that tries to describe and analyse the nature and depth of "home grown solutions" presented in post-genocide Rwanda. It also extends research on innovative areas including managing wounded memory in a post-genocide context, reconciliation and healing, family, language and culture as factors of social cohesion.
 
Home-Grown Solutions: Legacy to Generations in Africa, Vol. 2
This second volume is part of a study which envisions the rehabilitation of the original positive primal practices in the Rwandan way of life as a factor of sustainable development for nations. The contributors to this volume were guided by the quest for a founding heritage to be transmitted to future generations to inspire their own sense of creativity.
