“Islamic Perspectives on Organ Donation after Death”
The 1st workshop of the ‘Islamic Perspectives on Ethical Issues’ series
۳rd – ۴th October 2019
The Islamic Perspectives on Ethical Issues workshop series aims to provide an open platform for critical Islamic scholarship concerned with contemporary challenges faced by Muslims in every day life, particularly with regards to issues of applied ethics. By bringing together experts in traditional Islamic sciences of various dispositions, academics, and individual’s working with the grass-roots, the workshop will enable a dialectic between theoreticians dealing with ethical frameworks and those who understand the day to day problems at a practical level.
The workshop, hosted by Al-Mahdi Institute in conjunction with the UK Organ Donation and Transplant Research Centre at the University of Bedfordshire, hopes to facilitate multi-disciplinary scholarship dealing with “Islamic Perspectives on Organ Donation after Death.”
Approximately 6,500 people are currently waiting for an organ transplantation with an average of three people losing their lives on a daily basis. To tackle the chronic shortage of organ donors, England is currently transitioning towards a system of presumed consent, also known as the opt-out system, to be implemented in 2020. With studies consistently showing that British Muslims are reluctant to become donors citing religion as an influential factor in the decision-making process, there is an urgency to address the various problems which arise with regards to cadaveric organ donation.
of the two-day workshop consists of a 20-25-minute presentation by each presenter followed by an opportunity for questions and answers. Following the workshop, participants will be invited to submit their developed papers for publishing.
