Genetic discrimination : transatlantic perspectives on the case for a European-level legal response by G Quinn( Book )
6 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 57 libraries worldwide
"As genetic technologies advance, genetic testing may well offer the prospect of detecting the onset of future disabilities. Some research also forwards that certain behavioural profiles may have a strong genetic basis, such as the determination to succeed, or the propensity for risk-taking. As this technology becomes more prevalent there is a danger that genetic information may be misused by third parties, and that particular genetic profiles may be discriminated against by employers, insurance companies, and educational facilities. This book explores the different forms and potential uses of genetic testing. Drawing together leading experts in disability law, bioethics and genetic discrimination, it highlights the ethical and legal challenges arising as a result of emerging and rapidly advancing genetic science. Chapters in the book ask whether the US Genetic Information Non-Discrimination Act (GINA) is proving to be an effective tool in addressing the issue of genetic discrimination and is alleviating fears of discrimination. The book also reviews what may be learnt from GINA within employment and health insurance contexts, and asks how the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) may impact similar debates within the European Union. This book will be of great interest to scholars and students of discrimination law, bioethics, and disability law, and will be of considerable use to medical practitioners and policy makers in this area"--
