References to solidarity are currently on the increase in public discourse. In the UK and beyond, during economic crises and in a political climate where many feels that mutual assistance has lost currency, calls for a new and forceful emphasis on the meaning of solidarity are increasingly heard. Such appeals to solidarity are inevitably linked to ideas about how societies function, and about how and where the boundary between individual, familial, communal and societal spheres of responsibilities should be drawn.

Policymaking that relates to bioethical issues often centres around the relationship between the individual on one side and larger groups or the state on the other, and considers the obligations, rights and claims of those involved in these relationships. Policymaking questions in this area in bioethics are becoming more important and more politically recognised.

However, this is a relatively recent development that has not been yet been fully explored. Against this background, the Nuffield Council on Bioethics thought that a systematic analysis of the uses of solidarity in recent bioethics writing had the potential to inform bioethical thinking and policy more widely and explicitly and therefore commissioned a report on solidarity in recent bioethics literature.
