Australia 21 Pre-eminent think tank Australia 21 was established in 2001 to address Australian society’s difficult questions and to create a framework of increased public understanding of complex problems. In January 2013 Australia 21 hosted a Roundtable on voluntary euthanasia, with a report titled The right to choose an assisted death: Time for legislation? Prior to the Roundtable, a background paper titled How should Australia regulate voluntary euthanasia and assisted suicide? was published. Both reports are available on the Australia 21 website.
