Death Penalty and International Law

There are basically three fundamental concepts from which the legality of capital punishment is being challenged, i. e. “the right to life”, “the prohibition of torture and cruel, inhuman or degrading punishment” and “human dignity”.

International law applicable to the subject is derived from a variety of sources:

  • International humanitarian law
  • Customary international law
