http://www.weforum.org/31.01.2009Davos Open Forum 2009 - Live and Let DieDeath and dying are controversial subjects. Keywords such as euthanasia and assisted suicide trigger heated debates. Private euthanasia organizations challenge fundamental ethical convictions of our society as well as our legal system.1) Should a person be able to terminate his/her own life? To what extent would a liberal society allow self-determination?2) Is a legal framework regulating euthanasia and suicide necessary?3) In regard to the ageing of the population, how much should palliative care cost? Can medically assisted suicide be ethically legal?This session is co-organized with the Federation of Swiss Protestant Churches (SEK-FEPS).Petra De Jong, Chief Executive Officer, Right to Die, NetherlandsHans J?rgen M?nk, Professor for Theological Ethics, University of Lucerne, SwitzerlandMonika Renz, Psychotherapist, Management Psychooncology, Cantonal Hospital, St Gallen, SwitzerlandEveline Widmer-Schlumpf, Federal Councillor of Justice and Police of the Swiss ConfederationThomas Wipf, President of the Council, Federation of Swiss Protestant Churches, SwitzerlandModerated byUrs Leuthard, TV Host, Swiss Television SF DRS, Switzerland
