The Committee on Bioethics (DH-BIO) published a study prepared at its request by researchers from Uppsala University Department of Law (Sweden) on the challenges posed to the rights of the child by scientific and technological developments in biomedicine.

The study will be used as the basis to analyse existing international legal instruments, assess their relevance to address the challenges identified and, where appropriate, define further action at intergovernmental level.

This will contribute to the preparation of the international conference which will mark the 20th anniversary of the Oviedo Convention on 24-25 October 2017 organised under the auspices of the Czech Chairmanship of the Committee of Ministers. It is also integral part of the activities carried out under the Council of Europe Strategy for the Rights of the Child (2016-2021).

We set standards, monitor compliance and assist implementation of Human Rights and the Rule of Law
