In order to look at the scenarios that have arisen from the COVID-19 pandemic and to put the challenges presented by this situation on the table from different perspectives, the Faculty of Philosophy (FFI) of the Autonomous University of Queretaro (UAQ), through the Bioethics Unit, have launched the invitation to the International Symposium The fourth bioethics committee “Post-Covid Scenarios: A Bioethical View”, which will be held in a hybrid fashion on May 25, 26 and 27 this year.

According to Yunuen Hernández Ochoa, Associate in the Bioethics Unit at FFi, the call has been opened for national and international bioethics committees, as well as for those with work and research on the topic in areas such as the social sciences, humanities, biomedicine, technology and public policy, from Among other things.

In addition, he noted that although humanity was already moving towards a technology-based society, the pandemic is speeding things up and this presents significant challenges that must be discussed among the different areas of knowledge.

“One of the biggest challenges we have identified is the issue of confusing digital; although it was a necessary step, it is here (the pandemic) that other types of perspectives have been introduced into so-called digital citizenship, where there are issues such as digital ethics, neuroethics, internet ethics And this is one of the main challenges. Also, with this epidemiological problem, we must understand that the virus itself is not an enemy, but a natural progression of what happened due to our lack of environmental awareness.”Hernandez Ochoa said.

He also explained that the topics that will be discussed this year can be linked to the results of previous seminars, which will prompt further comments, and even an update of what happened.

I think that this symposium will add a lot to the views and opinions that we had in the previous editions because the information that was discussed earlier has not been erased, on the contrary, what happened with the humanitarian issue and hospitals is added to this, the issues noted in previous editions, about the epidemic or how much the situation has changed. It’s like a continuum until you get hereadded the university student.

The thematic themes that will be developed for this release are: Theoretical Foundations of Research Ethics, Research Ethics in the Social Sciences, Research Ethics in the Human Sciences, Biomedical Research Ethics, Research Ethics in Science and Technology, Ethics of Non-Human Animals, Ethics and Public Policy.
