In advance of the Jersey States Assembly debate on the Proposition on euthanasia and assisted suicide (EAS) next week, our Director Prof. David Albert Jones has recorded this video discussing the Citizens’ Jury which took place on the island to consider the issue, and the consequent EAS proposals being considered by politicians there.
Prof. Jones was one of three leading authorities on EAS to act as an independent content oversight advisers for the Citizens’ Jury set up by the Government of Jersey to consider the possibility for legislating to licence those practices on the island.
In his video, Prof. Jones considers the Citizens’ Jury, how it was selected so as to have a preponderance of those in favour of EAS, the concerns of those who took part, and the implications of their proposals for the States Assembly of Jersey and the wider public in the Bailiwick.
