Drawing upon a range of Constructivist work in the area of universal norms, norm life cycles, and norm actors, as well as public policy analysis regarding the role and development of regulations, the thesis provides an original point of entry into the ethical assessment and regulation of a hitherto unknown area: human therapeutic cloning (hTC). It combines case study profiling of Germany and the UK with detailed analysis of the prevailing legal and political discourses on hTC in the two states to assess both the visible differences in understanding the role of human dignity and treatment of humen embryos, as well as the more ambiguous procedural similarities between the two in terms of their norm actors.
