Just a quick plug for a research group I noticed online:
They are holding several workshops on issues around autonomy, which appear to be geared towards 'psychiatrists, philosophers, lawyers and social workers', and will discuss matters relating to the Mental Capacity Act. Well worth a look if you're interested in discussing these things at a multidiciplinary event.
Eleanor Roosevelt, 1958
'Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home -- so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any map of the world. Yet they are the world of the individual person... Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world.' Eleanor Roosevelt, 1958
