Global Engagement: Rethinking Risk In The Research Enterprise

via Hoover Institution Press
Thursday, July 30, 2020

Dueling narratives have filled this evidentiary vacuum, pitting some who propose incremental adjustments against others who call for far-reaching change. Without a common set of facts to anchor the debate, consensus has proven elusive. This report offers a way forward.
