Much of the debate around assisted dying, particularly in the media, has been highly polarised and lacking in full discussion of the complexities and practicalities around the subject. This research study is built on discussions with people who support and people who are critical of assisted dying, with the aim of exploring if there are any points of commonality between the two groups. Through consultation, the aim is to explore the possibility
of finding common ground, or shared understandings, between those
engaged in this discussion from outwardly conflicting positions – and to work out whether such commonality is even desirable.
