Solidarity: reflections on an emerging concept in bioethics
Solidarity in bioethics has received increasing attention but it is often unclear what the concept means.This report proposes a new definition of solidarity and applies it to policy making in the areas of biobanks, pandemics and lifestyle disease.
This project was commissioned by the Nuffield Council on Bioethics and funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the Nuffield Foundation.
Dementia: ethical issues
People with dementia, and those who care for them, face difficult ethical dilemmas on a day-to-day basis.
This report concludes that we need to do more as a society to enable people to live well with dementia. We present an ethical framework to help address problems that arise in connection with dementia care, together with recommendations for policy makers.
