Abstract

Based on experiments on inmates in Philadelphia's Holmsburg Prison in the 1950s-1970s, this book raises provocative questions about human rights, prison treatment and medical and research ethics. At a time of increased interest and renewed shock over the Tuskegee syphilis experiments, Acres of Skin sheds light on yet another dark episode of American medical history. In this disturbing expose, Allen M. Hornblum tells the story of Philadelphia's Holmesburg Prison.

Abstract

This handbook of practice and experience is designed for specialists and volunteers working with or for children of imprisoned parents. It seeks to promote, expand and inspire good practice relating to this vulnerable group of children and revolves around six themes: * Parenting in prison: supporting the imprisoned parent; * The legal framework: international and European conventions, national law and maintaining family ties; * Influencing public policy; * Mothers and babies in prison; * Children visiting prison; * Maintaining family ties: identifying training needs and methods.Each chapter offers a European approach and perspective on some of the work currently being carried out across Europe, presenting a commonality that transcends borders and national judicial and penal policies, rather than an exhaustive, nation-by-nation approach. As a whole, the handbook provides a child-centred guide for ideas and initiatives that foster and reinforce family ties for children with imprisoned parents and protect their emotional, psychological and social development.

Abstract

In this work, Wolfgang Weyers, a physician himself, cuts a swath, profoundly, through the history of unethical experiments on humans, from the first intentional innoculation of a patient with syphilis and gonorrhea in England of the late 18th century through the infamous Tuskegee Study...to the exploitation of orphans and prisoners as human guinea pigs...The scope of Weyers' erudition includes the East, as well as the West, and spares none of import who engaged in these unconscionable practices.

Abstract

Les recherches impliquant des populations vulnérables présentent peut-être la plus grande difficulté lorsqu'il s'agit de concilier les exigences contradictoires de l'éthique et de la recherche. Les institutions sociales ont évolué en vue de protéger et d'améliorer la vie des personnes vulnérables, enfants, personnes âgées, malades mentaux au déficients. La communauté internationale s'accorde sur le fait que des recherches doivent être menées afin de faire progresser la connaissance scientifique des maladies qui affectent particulièrement les populations vulnérables. Cependant, la recherche non thérapeutique impliquant de telles populations soulève des inquiétudes quant à la légitimité du consentement, au rôle du décideur-substitut, au rapport risque/bénéfice et aux mesures de sauvegarde. Ce troisième volume de L'éthique de la recherche aborde ces questions en demeurant fidèle au style de réflexion historique et philosophique des deux précédents volumes.
