Forensic DNA phenotyping is a genetic technology that might be used in criminal investigations. Based on DNA samples of the human body found at crime scenes, it allows to infer externally visible characteristics (such as eye, hair and skin colour) and continental-based biogeographical ancestry. By indicating the probable visible appearance of a cri...

Forensic DNA phenotyping (FDP) technology represents a set of techniques that aim to predict physical features of criminal suspects, such as eye, skin and hair colour, and also ethnicity through the inference of biogeographic ancestry from their biological samples. In contrast to other forensic technologies, FDP is not used for identification purpo...

By focusing on genetic surveillance technologies used to fight crime, we want to explore ethical concerns that bring challenges to a responsible governance of these technological innovations. Responsible governance faces the challenge of balancing between potential risks and benefits of surveillance – which are conceived differently in each country...
Article

Health literacy has become a key-element of public health promotion – rising as a discipline, a career and even a transactional value – and a variety of professionals have assembled around it. This paper departs from the divergent notions of health knowledge that such heterogeneity entails. Embracing a patient-centered and narrative-oriented approa...
Article
Clinical encounters are the most widely shared form of engagement of citizens with health care and medical knowledge and a major setting for the constitution of the health-aware, somatic citizen and are included in the repertoire of participation in the field of health. Following Joelle Zask's notion of participation, we propose to look at clinical...

This article provides an overview of the process that led to the adoption of a methodological strategy that privileges personal narratives on illness, within the framework of an ongoing research project. To this project, which focuses on three types of pathologies (cancer, respiratory diseases and child obesity), qualitative methodologies were cons...

Subjective accounts of illness enunciated as narratives constitute one topic of great importance in the sociology of health and medicine. These provide unique materials for exploring how subjects articulate their ways of making sense of illness, as well as to reflect on the explanatory models and salient prototypes (Kleinman, 1989) whilst building...

Na heterogeneidade daquilo que é entendido e vivenciado enquanto doença, um formato de concepção e análise desse fenómeno tem ganho relevância nos estudos sociais da saúde: as narrativas de experiência pessoal de doença. Estas fornecem materiais únicos para explorar as formas pelas quais os indivíduos dão sentido à doença, colocando em evidência mo...

Project
The transnational exchange of DNA profiles for forensic and policing use is an important tool to tackle serious and organised crime. European Union Law, under Prüm Decisions, compels Member States to create the conditions for the reciprocal automated exchange of DNA profiles for the purpose of fighting cross-border crime, combating terrorism and preventing illegal migration. What do we study? The EXCHANGE project explores the societal, cultural, ethical, regulatory and political impacts of the implementation of Prüm Decisions in the European Union. Within the project, an in-depth comparison of the cases of the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal and the United Kingdom will be carried out. Who supports our research? We are supported by the European Research Council (ERC), a public body established by the European Commission to promote cutting-edge science through highly competitive funding. We are hosted by the Centre for Social Studies (CES) at the University of Coimbra, Portugal. http://exchange.ces.uc.pt/ ERC Grant agreement No 648608
