[EDITO] In a month’s time, we will experience a decisive moment for universal abolition


30 January 2019

Dear abolitionist friends,

A year that ends with unprecedented support for the UN Resolution for a moratorium on the application of the death penalty (121 votes in favour, 35 against, 32 abstentions and 5 absent countries) and good abolitionist prospects for 2019: the constitutionalization of abolition in Burkina Faso, the abolitionist debate opened in Malaysia, and many other opportunities. That is why the World Congress against the Death Penalty in Brussels (26 Feb-1st March 2019) will be an essentiel gathering, in just 4 weeks!

So register now, mark the date on your agenda and book your tickets, because together we will be able to build the abolitionist strategies of tomorrow.

This edition will focus on the follow-up of the debates held at the Abidjan Regional Congress in 2018 on the situation in Africa, as well as on innovations. Thus, we will ask, in a new way, the international actors of the business world about the actions undertaken by the private sector to go towards abolition of the death penalty.
ECPM wishes you a very good start to 2019,

Raphaël Chenuil-Hazan
Executive Director ECPM
