Humanity 2.0: A CURRENT ETHICAL CHALLENGE FOR ANTI-DOPING

  1. 1. HUMANITY 2.0 A CURRENT ETHICAL CHALLENGE FOR ANTI-DOPING Professor @andymiah
  2. 2. ACT I THE CONTEXT
  3. 3. 1999 THE HUMAN RIGHTS OF THE GENETICALLY ENGINEERED ATHLETE
  4. 4. 2000 THE HUMAN GENOME PROJECT
  5. 5. 2001 GENE DOPING IS A REALITY
  6. 6. 2007 PROOF OF PRINCIPLE
  7. 7. 2016 HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF “We don’t know yet whether this has been done anywhere, but…it will be used sometime” Carl Johan Sundberg, Karolinska, WADA gene doping panel
  8. 8. 2005 THE STOCKHOLM DECLARATION
  9. 9. 2014 GENE THERAPY AS A HUMAN RIGHT
  10. 10. “From my own work with the mice, I also know that earlier you intervene, the better off you're going to be when you get old. So once you go down that path, I think it's unethical to withhold from someone something that would actually allow their muscles to be much healthier now and to the future. As long as there's no safety risk, I don't see why athletes should be punished because they're athletes. So I'm on the other side of the fence from Wada on this one, even though we're on the same team right now” Lee Sweeney, Jan 2014
  11. 11. 2004 WADA CODE INCLUDES ‘GENE DOPING’
  12. 12. 2017 THE FUTURE HAPPENED

  16. 16. 2016 INGESTIBLE TECHNOLOGIES BECOKE A REALITY
  17. 17. 2016 PROSTHETIC DEVICES BETTER THAN BIOLOGY
  18. 18. 2017 CONCLUSION: THE DILEMMA How can anti-doping protect its social mandate, when human enhancement is allowing the general public to become more capable of performing acts of physical endeavour than the anti-doping compliant athlete?
