Ausführliche Beschreibung:Since the end of the Genome Mapping Project, genetic testing has become a very widespread practice in different fields of human life ranging from search for susceptibility to genetic diseases or disorders to genetic enhancement. Legal regulations concerning genetic tests were early provided at the international, European, and national level. These rules were intended to prohibit genetic discrimination and stigmatization as well as to solve procedural and substantial problems related to information, protection of personal data and so forth. Many of the problems arising by genetic tests were assumed to be 'solved' by means of legal interventions by subsuming legal cases under specific regulations. To this purpose, questions concerning genetic discrimination were legally ruled in the majority of western countries with particular attention paid to prohibit abuses by third parties like insurance companies and employers. More than a decade has passed since these rules were provided at different levels of the legal systems. However, we still face the threat of biological inequality. The talk provides comparative insights into legal provisions concerning genetic testing from the earliest times to the latest trends from a biolaw's perspective. This approach allows to highlight the consistency of the previous norms with the new ones within the framework of fundamental rights and to test new norms in relation to the equality and non-discrimination principles.
