The study group for inter-generational Health Ethics is a research network dedicated bioethical issues concerning the relationship between generations and, more generally, questions of the future. These include health-related issues of sustainability, climate justice, genetics, and prevention. It addresses medicine as a dynamic field of inter-professional social practices that evolve and change in social and political contexts. Our ethical reflection is grounded in an analysis of relations, is sensitive to issues of injustice, and also incorporates social and cultural science approaches. Furthermore, methods of medium- to long-term normative evaluation, anticipation, and models of the future are the subject of our ethical inquiry.
