Casebook on Human Dignity and Human Rights
This casebook contains 30 case studies. Every case has been dealt with by a high judicial instance and offers a description of the type of ethical problems involved. Each case is followed by general guidelines for the edification of students who must themselves, under the guidance of their lecturer, study the case, discuss the possible solutions and reject what they consider unsuitable before reaching their own decision.
The aim of the project is to produce a tool and a platform for active participation of the students in the decision-making process. Combined efforts of teaching, educating and training by the use of such a methodology may plant and root in the hearts of the students ethical values that should guide any physician providing patient care.
