We believe the death penalty, however administered, will almost always violate universally accepted and absolute human rights, namely, the right to life and the right not to be subject to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.

RESEARCH AND PUBLICATIONS

Our legal work is complemented by research studies, publications, training and education, particularly for those members of the legal profession involved in the defence and prosecution of capital cases. We have commissioned reports, studies and research into many aspects of the death penalty and human rights law and to read the reports, please click on the individual titles.
