About the Event:

Observed annually on October 10, World Day Against the Death Penalty unifies and mobilises civil society, political leaders, lawyers, and public opinion in pursuit of universal abolition of the death penalty. 2022 also marks the centenary of one of the world’s earliest statutory abolitions in the Australian state of Queensland.

Abolition may now be widely embraced as a norm of international human rights law, but its establishment as a comprehensive and irrevocable fact remains elusive.

This event—presented in partnership with the EU Delegation of Australia, Eleos Justice (Monash University), The Griffith Centre for Social and Cultural Research (Griffith University) and the Australian National University—brings together academics and experts to discuss the politics of death penalty abolition from a number of perspectives—historical, legal and political, domestic and international.

This events also includes the official launch of the special issue ‘Death Penalty Politics: The Fragility of Abolition in Asia and the Pacific’ featuring eight papers published by the International Journal for Crime, Justice and Social Democracy.
