dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this dissertation is to examine the reasons why all UK bills to introduce an Assisted Suicide Act of parliament have failed, as well as examining other jurisdictions to assess how they have implemented a form of euthanasia in to the legal system. This is done to then recommend to the government on how they could implement an Assisted Suicide Act. This dissertation was completed through undertaking a literature review, a discussion and analysis of findings and a conclusion. A literature Review was completed using a variety of sources to collect information to analyse the arguments for and against the legalisation of euthanasia and assisted suicide. This was done to show public and theorists opinions on a major topic in the UK. Secondary research was conducted through researching online, books and journals. Using all this to find relevant information from respected theorists, such as Keown (2012) and Grayling (2008). To conclude, this dissertation provides an analysis and discussion of findings and then gives recommendations to the government on how they could implement an Assisted Suicide bill, using the safeguards shown in other jurisdictions.en_US
