Should We Vaccinate Children Against Addictions? Some Ethical Considerations
The fast-paced technological development in the last decades has brought many crucial ethical questions to the table. Many of these questions are as fascinating as they are difficult, creating strong controversies both in the medical profession and public opinion. How do we find solutions? How can we understand what is right?

In this talk, Lovro Savić, PhD student in Public Health Ethics at the University of Oxford, will provide a gentle but captivating overview of public health ethics, explaining how researchers study these questions and try to come up with useful solutions. In particular, Lovro will be examining a real-life research question: is state-mandated vaccination of children against addictions morally admissible?

This is the fourth and last of the Green Templeton Outreach Talks, funded by a Green Templeton College Academic Initiatives Grant.
