7. Suicide and euthanasia Abstract The issue of suicide is problematic for Buddhists. It is a common belief that suicide is permitted in Buddhism. ‘Suicide and euthanasia’ argues that in Buddhism, the human lifespan is a destiny determined by karma. To shorten a life artificially with suicide or euthanasia is seen by many Buddhists as tampering with destiny. It seems that rather than support the movement for euthanasia, most Buddhists would rather support the hospice movement. Buddhism has a great openness about death and encourages its followers to meditate and prepare for it in a number of ways. The Buddha

5. In and out of prison Abstract ‘In and out of prison’ considers the state of prisons today; the typical prison population; the crimes that result in imprisonment; the costs of imprisonment; the process of release and the pros and cons of parole; life after release; and re-offenders. We expect our prisons to punish and to rehabilitate, but often there are numerous ‘pains of imprisonment’: incarceration, assault, homicide, accidental death by drug overdose, self-harm, and then the long-term financial impact and adverse life events on release from custody. Rehabilitation in the prison system is also difficult and costly to provide.
