Special Reports to the Hastings Center Report present the results of research projects. Reports may be single-authored or collections of essays prepared by members of project working groups, consensus documents, or lively conversations among those who reached differing moral conclusions about a project’s central questions.
Bioethics Briefings contain overviews of issues of high public interest, such as abortion, climate change, organ transplantation, and physician-assisted death. The briefs, written by leading ethicists, are nonpartisan, describing topics from a range of perspectives that are grounded in scientific facts.
