Group risks, risks to groups, and group engagement in genetics research
Hausman, Daniel M.

This essay distinguishes between two kinds of group harms: harms to individuals in virtue of their membership in groups and harms to "structured" groups that have a continuing existence, an organization, and interests of their own.
