Keywords: Human Enhancement Technologies, Transhumanism, Crispr, Gene Editing, Genome Editing, Therapy, Society, Genetic Discrimination, Biotechnology

The Western world has undergone a paradigm shift over the course of the last 50 years, whereby individuals have increasingly gained control over their own body and life choices. Meanwhile, new technologies have increased their breadth of application, progressively blending into manifold aspects of our daily life. Human enhancement technologies in particular will bring a new set of risks and opportunities that may significantly disrupt the health and employment sectors, leading us to rethink our approach to science and the human body.
