Eugenics and social democracy: or, how the European left tried to eliminate the 'weeds' from its national gardens
Veronique Mottier, Natalia Gerodetti, pages -

Abstract

One consequence of developing genetics, is the revival of anxieties about past eugenic experiences, and this article suggests that there are important lessons to be drawn from this, particularly in the context of social democracy in Europe. Mottier and Gerodetti focus on Switzerland, demonstrating how current ethical concerns around new human genetics are connected with social democracy and with the role of the modern state.
