THE DEBATE

A live debate on the topic of the day, with four guests. From Monday to Thursday at 7.10 pm Paris time.

Latest update : 2012-10-11

End of the death penalty?

Support for the death penalty may be on the wane worldwide but as the Arab Spring rewrites constitutions, the abolition of capital punishment is by no means a given. In France, the death penalty is long gone. However, for many, the punishment still does not fit the crime, with some of the EU’s longest prison sentences.

  • Eric BERNARD. Spokesperson, "Together against the Death Penalty";
  • Celine BARDET. Jurist, International Criminal Law. Author, "Zone Sensible";
  • Avi BITTON. Human Rights Attorney, Avi Bitton Law Firm;
  • Richard C. DIETER. Executive Director, Death Penalty Information Center (from Washington).

Watch the second part here.
