Militaries and the duty of care to enhanced veterans

Adam Henschke

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review

Abstract

This article argues that there is a duty of care held by the State to military veterans who have been technologically enhanced as part of their military service. It suggests that enhancements may be permanent, persistent or protracted and demonstrates how enhancements generate additional moral responsibilities from the chain of command. The paper concludes by demonstrating how this institutional duty of care relates to issues such as informed consent.
