Spotkanie odbędzie się w środę 13 kwietnia o godzinie 17:30 w sali 25 Instytutu Filozofii UJ (Grodzka 52) oraz za pośrednictwem platformy MS Teams.
The precautionary principle was initially developed in environmental law and then was implemented in other domains, such as public health, food and safety or biotechnology. It also migrated to other disciplines, such as philosophy and became a subject of interest by legal philosophers, philosophers of science or bioethicists.
One of the most widespread formulations of precautionary principles (called the Wingspread Statement, 1998) claims that “[w]hen an activity raises threats of harm to human health or the environment, precautionary measures should be taken even if some cause and effect relationships are not fully established scientifically”.
It seems to oppose the recent trend of an evidence-based approach to lawmaking and public policies, according to which legislation should be based on the best available scientific evidence and systematically collected data when available.
