New CILE Publication*
During the period 5-7 January 2013, the Research Center for Islamic Legislation & Ethics (CILE) organized an international seminar for examining the Islamic perspectives on the principles of biomedical ethics. The proceedings of this seminar led to Islamic Perspectives on the Principles of Biomedical Ethics, a new refereed publication issued in collaboration with two reputable academic publishers, namely Imperial College Press and Word Scientific.
Islamic Perspectives on the Principles of Biomedical Ethics is an edited volume which contains some of the papers presented during the aforementioned seminar in addition to other papers which were written after the seminar. The volume is divided into three main parts:
- Part I (Methodological Issues)
- Part II (Principles of Biomedical Ethics)
- Part III (Islamic Perspectives on the Principles of Biomedical Ethics)
The volume is edited by Dr. Mohammed Ghaly who moderated the seminar when he was affiliated with Leiden University at the time of the seminar and he is currently Professor of Islam and Biomedical Ethics.
