Capital punishment has for many years now been the subject of controversy and moral debate. With the strengthening focus worldwide on human rights there has been a movement to abolish this form of punishment or in the least, uphold the minimum international law standards aimed at protecting the rights of those facing capital punishment. This book identifies Asia as being particularly unaffected by these international pressures. The essays contained in this volume provide an analysis of changes in the scope and application of the death penalty in Asian countries, and explain in what ways they fail to meet these international law standards.
