Military and Humanitarian Health Ethics

Series Editors: Messelken, Daniel, Winkler, David

ISSN: 2524-5465

The interdisciplinary book series Military and Humanitarian Health Ethics fosters an academic dialogue between the well-established disciplines of military ethics on the one hand and medical ethics, humanitarian ethics and public health ethics on the other hand. Military and Humanitarian Health Ethics have emerged as a distinct research area in the last years, triggered among other things by the unfortunate realities of armed conflicts and other situations of humanitarian disasters - man-made or natural. The book series focuses on the increasing amount of ethical challenges while providing medical care before, during, and after armed conflicts and other emergencies. By combining practical first-hand experiences from health care providers in the field with the theoretical analysis of academic experts, such as philosophers and legal scholars, the book series provides a unique insight into an emerging field of research of high topical interest. It is the first series in its field and aims at publishing state-of-the-art research, illustrated and enriched by field reports and ground experiences from health care providers working in armed forces or humanitarian organizations.

We welcome proposals for volumes within the broad scope of this interdisciplinary and international book series, especially proposals for books that cover topics of interest for both the military and the humanitarian community, and which try to foster an exchange between the two often separate communities of military and humanitarian health care providers.
