Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal is extremely proud to present this special volume on ethical and social issues arising out of the 2016 US presidential election and the Trump administration.
The issue includes 12 high-quality papers that are divided into two sections: main issue papers and blog papers. While main issue papers will be published within the next few weeks through Johns Hopkins Press, we have provided PDFs of those papers in advance of their official publication here.
