LA DÉCLARATION UNIVERSELLE SUR LE GÉNOME HUMAIN ET LES DROITS DE L'HOMME (UNESCO,1997), ÉTUDE JURIDIQUE

Abstract : The legal analysis of the Universal Declaration on the Human Genome (UDHG) intends to focus less on the normativity of the text adopted by UNESCO in 1997 than its material content. The thesis describes the historical background of the adoption of the UDHG, placing it in its scientific and epistemologic context, while questioning the notion of « genetic exceptionalism » ( ie : the need for the law to establish a specific framework -and especially to reinforce the existing framework- to regulate scientifics and medical application in the field of genetics). The thesis then allows to compare national or international rules with the original concepts drawned up by UNESCO to qualify the Human Genome (assumed to be common to the human species, to constitute « in a symbolic way, an heritage of mankind »), and also to reveal the inherent dignity of the human being. This work seeks to highlight the aporia to which could lead specific rules on genetics, but also the distance that remains in order to achieve the original targets of the initiators of the UDHG, towards the shared management of a common.
