Ethical Perspectives on the News
The Markkula Center for Applied Ethics staff and affiliated scholars meet regularly to discuss the ethical issues behind the headlines. Podcasts of our discussions on current issues are available.
Staff and scholars can also provide commentary and background information for media on many topics in applied ethics. For a list of sources, see Ethics Experts for Media.
