Start at 10:00 am (“lekenpraatje”: 9:30), Senaatszaal, Aula, TU Delft

On June 27th Lotte Asveld will defend her PhD thesis ‘Respect for autonomy & technological risks‘. In her thesis she investigates how respect for autonomy can be improved in decisions concerning the acceptability of technological risk. Imposition of technological risks without the consent of the individual is considered morally problematic. Through various case-studies options are investigated to increase influence of the individual on technological risks.
