The composition of the European Group on Ethics in Science and New Technologies


1) The Commission failed to ensure that the EGE, in its current composition, is an independent and pluralist body.

2) The Commission failed to provide a satisfactory explanation as to why theology is considered as one of the relevant disciplines for membership of the EGE whereas philosophy is not.


1) The Commission should overhaul the composition of the EGE in order to ensure that it is a truly independent and pluralist body.

2) The Commission should ensure that the criteria used to appoint the members of the EGE are not discriminatory and do not lead to the over-representation of specific religious groups, or religious groups in general.
