  • Survey on opinions from National Ethics Committees or similar bodies, public debate and national legislation in relation to human embryonic stem cell research and use - Volume I: in EU Member States


Opinions on the legitimacy of experiments using human embryos are divided according to the different ethical, philosophical, and religious traditions in which they are rooted. EU Member States have taken very different positions regarding the regulation of human embryonic stem cell research. In order to contribute to a structured debate, the European Commission, DG Research, initiated in spring 2001 a survey concerning the opinions from national ethics committees and current national legislation in relation to human embryonic stem cell research. This survey will continue to be updated on a regular basis. (Volume 2) of the survey covers Countries acceding to the EU, Countries associated to FP6 and Third Countries
