International Euthanasia Conference 2016 Amsterdam

  • Conference Call
  • NVVE is proud to orga­nize this 2016 edi­tion of the bien­nial inter­na­tional con­fer­ence on Euthana­sia in coop­er­a­tion with the World Fed­er­a­tion of Right to Die Soci­eties. The event will be held on May 1114, 2016 in Ams­ter­dam, Nether­lands at the RAI Ams­ter­dam Con­ven­tion Cen­tre.

    In a world with a grow­ing demand for legal­ized euthana­sia and (physi­cian) assisted dying, this con­fer­ence intends to inform and inspire a wide range of pro­fes­sion­als involved in end-​of-​life choices. This con­fer­ence will offer physi­cians, sci­en­tists, lawyers, politi­cians, pol­i­cy­mak­ers, cam­paign­ers and activists an oppor­tu­nity to deepen, broaden and share their knowl­edge and expe­ri­ence. The NVVE strives to con­tribute to make dying-​with-​dignity a legal option in more countries.

    About 800 del­e­gates are expected at the con­fer­ence, which will be held in Ams­ter­dam RAI.

    Con­fer­ence Sec­tions and Topics


    The Med­ical Pro­gram addresses day to day decision-​making by physi­cians in end-​of-​life-​care.

    • What defines good med­ical care when life comes to a close?
    • Which eth­i­cal dilem­mas are involved when con­sid­er­ing eihter pal­lia­tive care or euthana­sia? The Progam is espe­cially inter­est­ing for physi­cians, health care work­ers, psy­chi­a­trists and pol­icy advi­sors con­cerned with the chal­lenges regard­ing dying with dignity.


    The lat­est sci­en­tific research in end-​of-​life care and dying will be pre­sented. Emi­nent, inter­na­tional speak­ers will dis­cuss facts & fig­ures and their impli­ca­tions for the future. These chal­lenges will be explored from dif­fer­ent sci­en­tific fields such as bioethics, med­i­cine and social science.

    Var­i­ous aspects of and obsta­cles to the leg­is­la­tion of euthana­sia and assisted dying leg­is­la­tion will be shared and dis­cussed, with exam­ples from dif­fer­ent states and coun­tries e.g. the Nether­lands, Bel­gium, Switzer­land, Que­bec (Canada) and Ore­gon (USA).


    • What makes a dying with dig­nity cam­paign effective?
    • What are the do’s and don’ts?
    • What lan­guage to use?
    • How to link in to social media?
    • How to trans­form broad pub­lic sup­port into action? The Cam­paign Pro­gram focuses on specifics involved in cam­paign­ing for dying with dig­nity, pay­ing par­tic­u­lar atten­tion to national and cul­tural differences.
