The Greek Law on Human Enhancement
Information Law, DALMS, Ionian University.
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The article presents the Greek law on human enhancement1. Enhancement interventions can take place upon an embryo or even earlier, upon genetic cells, but also on a born human body, to ameliorate appearance, health, strength, memory, perception and other desirable traits. Enhancement interventions may affect the body, as well as the mind. The Greek Commission on Bioethics has issued, therefore, two separate Opinions on Human Enhancement. The Greek academic literature on human enhancement is scarce and mostly deals with cosmetic surgery and genomics interventions. There is, however, a set of more general laws on medical law and medical ethics which are applicable on human enhancement issues.
