European Day against the Death Penalty

10 October is the European Day against the death penalty – Europe being the only region in the world today, where the death penalty is no longer applied. You may read about the Day at http://www.coe.int/t/dc/files/themes/peine_de_mort/default_en.asp

Laurent Pech, Jean Monnet Lecturer in EU Public Law, and William Schabas, Professor of Human Rights Law, at the National University of Ireland, compare the European Convention on Human Rights, which initially (before Protocol No. 13) authorizes death penalty, with the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union with that regard at http://humanrightsdoctorate.blogspot.com
