Join us on Thursday, 21 January at 10am (UTC+1) for the launch of our new fact-finding mission on the death penalty in Lebanon, “Alive, without being”. Register online by following this link.
The fact-finding mission was carried out by ECPM in partnership with the AJEM (l’Association Justice et Miséricorde) and the LACR (the Lebanese Association for Civil Rights). Carole Berrih, Director of Synergies Coopération and editor of this report, and her co-editor Karim El Mufti took up the testimonies collected by the investigators and integrated them into a historical, legal and political analysis of the application of the death penalty in Lebanon.
This report is part of ECPM’s “Fact-finding missions on death row” collection, which takes stock of living conditions on death row in different countries around the world. The aim is to report on the reality of the application of the death penalty, to call public opinion out and to support advocacy with national authorities and the international community.
Discover “Alive, without being ” on Thursday 21 January, at 10 am (Paris time), 11 am (Beirut time).
