520    The sequencing of the entire human genome has opened up 
       unprecedented possibilities for healthcare, but also 
       ethical and social dilemmas about how these can be 
       achieved, particularly in developing countries. UNESCO's 
       Bioethics Programme was established to address such issues
       in 1993. Since then, it has adopted three declarations on 
       human genetics and bioethics (1997, 2003 and 2005), set up
       numerous training programmes around the world and debated 
       the need for an international convention on human 
       reproductive cloning. Negotiating Bioethics presents 
       Langlois' research on the negotiation and implementation 
       of the three declarations and the human cloning debate, 
       based on fieldwork carried out in Kenya, South Africa, 
       France and the UK, among policy-makers, geneticists, 
       ethicists, civil society representatives and industry 
       professionals. The book examines whether the UNESCO 
       Bioethics Programme is an effective forum for (a) decision
       -making on bioethics issues and (b) ensuring ethical 
       practice. Considering two different aspects of the UNESCO 
       Bioethics Programme - deliberation and implementation - at
       international and national levels, Langlois explores: - 
       how relations between developed and developing countries 
       can be made more equal - who should be involved in global 
       level decision-making and how this should proceed - how 
       overlap between initiatives can be avoided - what can be 
       done to improve the implementation of international norms 
       by sovereign states - how far universal norms can be 
       contextualized - what impact the efficacy of national 
       level governance has at international level Drawing on 
       extensive empirical research, Negotiating Bioethics 
       presents a truly global perspective on bioethics.
