Euthanasia in Europe: Where have we come from and where are we going?

First European Symposium on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide

Edinburgh Conference Centre 6-8 September 2012

The UK Care Not Killing Alliance is honoured to host this first European symposium, which builds on several successful meetings in North America organised by the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition.

The excellent facilities of the Edinburgh Conference Centre are the obvious place to hold this first European gathering, as in December 2010 the Scottish Parliament rejected by 85 votes to 16 the legalisation in Scotland of euthanasia and assisted suicide.

But threats continue in Europe and beyond.  In plenary sessions with audience involvement, experts from around the world will stimulate consideration of:

  • The lessons from Nazi-ism
  • The Benelux countries today
  • A global perspective
  • Scotland’s successful resistance
  • Their strategies and ours: what works? What doesn’t?

 If you’re committed to opposing euthanasia and assisted suicide, come and join us!
