Starting from suggestions coming from most recent research, the monographic issue of «Contemporanea» aims at proposing a reflection on the forms of eugenics expressed in the second half of the twentieth century, in European and extra-European contexts, adopting a wide perspective, taking into consideration the ideological and theoretical dimensions, the relation with politics and citizenship policies, the continuity of ideas, people, structures and institutions between totalitarian and democratic contexts as well as the changes in the meaning of eugenics with regard to the developments of genetic and biomedical research.
