Invitation to the 4th Workshop on Military Medical Ethics of the
International Committee of Military Medicine (ICMM)

For the fourth time, the ICMM Reference Centre for Education in IHL and
Ethics together with the Medical Services Directorate of the Swiss Armed
Forces and the Center for Ethics of Zurich University  organise their annual
Workshop on Military Medical Ethics. The main topics for the 2014 workshop
are resource allocation, disaster bioethics, and e-learning in military
medical ethics and IHL.

The idea of this workshop series is to bring experts and interested people
from the relevant academic disciplines and the practice together and to
offer a neutral, international platform to discuss medical ethical dilemmas
that are encountered by medical troops and humanitarian forces in
deployment. Switzerland with its tradition of neutrality and support of
Humanitarian Law is very pleased to offer a workshop where specialists in
Law of Armed Conflict, military medical professionals, philosophers and
members of the ICRC are meeting to analyse, discuss and deliberate various
ethical dilemmas of military medicine.

The results of the workshop are being published in annual proceedings.

We invite all interested people and specialists from the fields of Ethics,
International Law, and the Military to participate in this workshop, which
is taking place at the shores of the beautiful lake “Bodensee”, near Zurich
from April 24th to April 26th 2014. You will find the workshop programme and
the application form on our website

Registration is required by 15 April 2014 or until all places have been taken. Please use the form available at:
