Workshop I (London 2013): Global Governance of Human Embryonic Stem Cell Research and Therapy - An Example from India

A policy workshop was held on 15 March 2013 at King’s College London as part of the ESRC funded research ‘State strategies of governance in biomedical innovation: the impact of China and India’. This research project explores emerging innovation dynamics and trans-national governance in the context of the increasing importance of the life sciences and technologies in countries’ and regions’ competitive and collaborative economic strategies, and the recognition that biomedical sciences raise difficult questions of ethics and of social impact. The workshop was a first of a series of workshops, whose results are designed to inform public policy-making in a range of fields in regenerative and personalised medicine in the UK and the ‘Rising Powers’ of India and China.
