Bioethics and biopolitics in Israel: Socio-legal, political, and empirical analysis

Hagai Boas, Yael Hashiloni-Dolev, Nadav Davidovitch, Dani Filc, Shai J. Lavi

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


Although the ‘Israeli case’ of bioethics has been well documented, this book offers a novel understanding of Israeli bioethics that is a milestone in the comparative literature of bioethics. Bringing together a range of experts, the book’s interdisciplinary structure employs a contemporary, sociopolitical-oriented approach to bioethics issues, with an emphasis on empirical analysis, that will appeal not only to scholars of bioethics, but also to students of law, medicine, humanities, and social sciences around the world. Its focus on the development of bioethics in Israel makes it especially relevant to scholars of Israeli society - both in and out of Israel - as well as medical practitioners and health policymakers in Israel.
