Project: Research

View graph of relations


Our original GRF proposal plans to study three prominent international models of organ donation to investigate what Hong Kong can learn from them. These models can be termed liberalism, compensationalism and familism and are practiced respectively in various countries. This SRG project will explore part of the original GRF objectives in order to improve the GRF proposal for reapplication. In particular, we will investigate how familist incentive measures have been actually employed in current mainland China and examine how such measures are morally justified. Moreover, we will investigate how organizational coordination networks based on family consent in Spain, the country with highest donation rate in the world, actually motivate organ donation in the country. We will conduct both literature review and selective interviews with experienced personals in China and Spain to gain useful data so as to improve our GRF proposal for reapplication.
