Research is at the heart of the KIE.
The Institute’s founding scholars helped to create the field of bioethics, and our faculty’s strength in foundational areas of bioethics is unparalleled. Keeping pace with real-world developments in health and data technology, environmental science and policy, and the like, our collaborative community of researchers and practitioners continues to grow and expand into new areas.
Resources for Researchers
Ethics Lab is a hub for creative ethics learning at Georgetown and beyond.
The lab takes a practical approach to applied ethics, tackling complex contemporary moral problems using a mix of philosophical tools and design thinking.
In the lab, we recognize that new tools, policies, and frameworks are needed to reckon with today’s moral challenges, and we aim to address those challenges through direct-impact work and a transformative ethics education. Our character-based ethics learning works to educate women and men for others, and our direct-impact work aims to make a difference in the world beyond Georgetown’s gates.
The global standard for bioethics resources
The KIE’s Bioethics Research Library is the world’s most comprehensive collection of scholarly bioethics materials in the world. The library is home to more than 31,000 books and hundreds of journals, archival materials, and digital objects, including the writings by many of the founders of the field of bioethics. Its collections span classical thought to contemporary and emerging issues, and the works present a diverse range of religious, political, and cultural perspectives developed globally on bioethical issues.
The library offers world-class research support to bioethics scholars across the globe. You can access a number of the library’s extensive archives online, schedule a one-on-one consultation with a librarian, and receive customized, iterative research support for free from anywhere in the world through its online web form. In conjunction with the KIE’s Visiting Researchers Program, the library provides individual study spaces for the KIE visiting researchers during their stay.
The Bioethics Research Library is located in Georgetown’s iconic Healy Hall building and is open to students, faculty, and researchers from across campus; students and faculty of the Washington Research Library Consortium; and registered visiting scholars.
Thirty-plus years of scholarly publication
Now in its third decade of publication, the Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal is an interdisciplinary quarterly journal. Over time, the journal’s focus has evolved from an early emphasis on traditional concerns in bioethics – such as the ethics of clinical research and physician-patient relations – to include moral issues in emerging medical technologies and other aspects of human health and well-being, including public health ethics and environmental justice.
The journal solicits in-depth articles that combine detailed conceptual analysis with practical engagement. Please visit the Journal website for more information about manuscript and submission guidelines.
