9780199685776: Confronting Capital Punishment in Asia: Human Rights, Politics and Public Opinion

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.

About the Author:


Roger Hood, Professor Emeritus of Criminology, University of Oxford and Emeritus fellow,Surya Deva, Associate Professor, School of Law, City University of Hong Kong

Roger Hood is a Research Associate, formerly Professor of Criminology and Fellow of All Souls College, and former Director of the Centre for Criminological Research, All Souls College. He received the Cesare Beccaria Medal in 2011 from the International Society for Social Defence and a Humane Criminal Policy for his contributions towards the abolition of the death penalty and in 2012 the European Society of Criminology Award for a lifetime contribution as a European criminologist. His research has had four main strands: the death penalty; race and sentencing; the parole system; and the history of the emergence of penal policy.
Dr Surya Deva is an Associate Professor at the School of Law of City University of Hong Kong. Dr Deva's primary research interests lie in Corporate Social Responsibility, Indo-Chinese Constitutional Law, International Human Rights, Globalisation, and Sustainable Development. He has published numerous book chapters and journal articles in these areas.

Review:


"To what extent does popular support for discontinuation of the death penalty have to be presented for abolitionist laws to be legitimate? Do changes in public attitudes toward the death penalty necessarily precede abolition, or do cultural shifts occur later as a by-product of bold legal or political reforms? In raising these and other questions, this volume not only adds to our understanding of capital punishment in an area of obvious interest, but opens new and promising directions for further inquiry."- Stephen Noakes, Lecturer in Politics and International Relations and Asian Studies at the University of Auckland
