What is expected of State authorities with regard to the obligation to safeguard the life of detainees? What obligations do State authorities have in relation to the investigation into deaths that occur during deprivation of liberty by the State?
This book addresses these questions regarding death in State custody in view of the European Convention on Human Rights, in particular the right to life, the prohibition of torture and the right to respect for private life (including the right to self-determination). It also provides an analysis of whether the Dutch legal framework contains safeguards to meet the requirements that follow from the European Convention on Human Rights.
Matters that are discussed in detail are the obligation to provide healthcare to detainees and to take protective measures to safeguard the life of detainees. The ethical issues regarding end of life decisions of detainees, like refusal of medical treatment, hunger and/or thirst strike, suicide and euthanasia, and the conflicts that may arise in this regard considering the obligations of State authorities are addressed.
This book is a must-have for all those who are involved in the (medical) treatment of detainees and who are confronted with death in State custody.
