It is a rich puzzle and a global mapping for orientation.

Mais ces richesses attirent aussi beaucoup d'acteurs qui cherchent à en tirer un bénéfice, profitant des conflits et d'un Etat de droit déficient.

Abstract:

This position paper puts forward an ethical case for end-of-life decision-mak¬ing legislation. Such legislation would clarify areas of legal uncertainty, most notably in respect of terminal pain management, withholding and withdrawal of life-sustaining treatment (sometimes called "passive euthanasia"), and advance directives (a living will and a durable power of attorney for healthcare). More controversially, the paper also argues for the inclusion of assisted dying (assisted suicide and voluntary active euthanasia) in a comprehensive end-of-life decision-making bill.
