The next session of the Joint Bioethics Colloquium is coming up this Thursday. Prof Albert Weale (UCL) will present “Doctors on Assisted Dying: The Dialectics of Debate”, 16:00-17:30, UCL Pearson (North East Entrance) G22 Lecture Theatre, http://www.ucl.ac.uk/maps/pearson-lt.
The paper draws on a computer-aided text analysis of the internal consultation held by the Royal College of Physicians on the prospect of a liberalisation of the law on assisted dying. The results provide a number of interesting insights in understanding the reasoning of the different sides in the debate.
All are welcome to attend.
For inquiries contact the convenor Dr James Wilson.
