In this movie filmed in September 2012, several renowned experts, all members of the International Bioethics Committee (IBC) established by UNESCO in 1993, as well as the UNESCO's Assistant-Director General for Social and Human Sciences highlight the new risks of discrimination and the new responsibilities induced by the advances in biomedicine (biobanks, access to drugs, transplant and organ trafficking, as well as tissue and cell trafficking, neuroscience, HIV/AIDS and nanotechnologies). These new risks are considered under a single "conceptual umbrella": the Principle of non-discrimination and non-stigmatization, as set out in Article 11 of the Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights (2005).

These new risks are the object of an IBC Report which could be adopted at the 20th session of this Committee of consultation of UNESCO, organized from June 19th to 21st, 2013, in Seoul (Korea). More information on http://www.unesco.org/new/en/social-a...
