Title Genetic Discrimination
Author(s) Halldenius, Lena
Date 2007
Editor(s) Chadwick, Ruth; Häyry, Matti; Arnason, Vilhjalmur; Arnason, Gardar
English abstract
In this article I discuss and analyse what is referred to as the standard account of discrimination as measured against a number of requirements any viable account of discrimination should satisfy. I also discuss how the standard account fails to explain how differential treatment based on genetic factors can be regarded as discriminatory.
