World Congress


— FAB World Congress, Bangalore, India, December 3-5, 2018 —

FAB 2018 is the 12th World Congress of the International Network on Feminist Approaches to Bioethics.

Our World Congress brings together academics and practitioners from diverse backgrounds to explore and develop feminist perspectives on ethical issues relating to health. It is a vibrant and welcoming gathering that offers significant opportunities to share ideas, learn from others, participate in constructive debates and engage with a supportive network.

Congress theme: “Confronting inequality in health and health care: global challenges, feminist responses”. We anticipate a diverse array of stimulating presentations and discussions on this theme. There will also be opportunities to discuss feminist investigations in other areas of bioethics.

The final event of FAB 2018 is a plenary session run jointly with IAB 2018.
