"Most Serious Crimes' and the Death Penalty
At the end of the month, I will attend a conference entitled ‘The Impact of International Conventions towards China’s Death Penalty Reform’, being held at the Friendship Hotel in Beijing. Our hosts are the Centre for the Reform of the Death Penalty at Beijing Normal University. I am presenting a paper on the concept of ‘most serious crimes’ as a limitation on the use of capital punishment imposed by international human rights law: http://www.mediafire.com/?jdvdssdi1im.
