In total, more than 1,200 people participated in debates and events organized by ECPM and its partners over 3 days. To memorialise everyone’s commitment, ECPM is today publishing the proceedings of the 8th World Congress against the death penalty, a comprehensive compilation of the rich discussions shared with all the congress attendees.
This extensive 200-page report encapsulates session summaries, interviews, panelists’ profiles, and poignant stories of those directly or indirectly affected by the harsh realities of this cruel and inhumane punishment. It stands as a testament to the global landscape of the death penalty in the autumn of 2022. Moreover, this document serves as a launching pad for continued discussions in anticipation of the forthcoming World Congress. Excitingly, it brings a fresh perspective to the forefront, paving the way for new dialogues and collaborations in the fight against the death penalty worldwide.
