Genetic Discrimination

Halldenius, Lena LU (2007) In The Ethics and Governance of Human Genetic Databases p.170-180
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.
