1. The theoretical research on the self-determination doctrine of death
I have researched on the characteristics of the right of self-determination of the patients including that of the death in the medical sphere. It followed that the right of self-determination of the patients could and should have various kinds of existence forms in the different dimensions, and that their self-determination was explored, examined and changed differently in the communication with others, especially their family, which was shown in my thesis, " What kind of position does the self-determination of the patients occupy in the medical sphere? ----medical problems and public sphere ".
2. The comparative legal research on the right of the self-determination of death
(1) I have studied the legal regulations on human embryos in South Korea and Japan, researching on the similarities and differences of both countries in the formation of the bioethical norms, which I discussed in my paper, "Regulations for the Studies on Human Embryos : Korean and Japanese Case ".
(2)I read my paper in the international conference held by the Association of East Asian Legal Philosophy, discussing the possibility of the East Asian type of family-based bioethical norms compared with the West-European and American type of individual right-based ones.
3. The analysis of the data on the questionnaire survey
The questionnaire survey of the euthanasia was made to the South Korean doctors. Though the data analysis was done, some defects in the way of taking data caused the difficulty and delay in the publication of the analytical result. It would be a future subject.
